Calligraphy Workshop Series

Join acclaimed local artist and expert calligrapher LeLe Chan to explore the ancient art of calligraphy and learn the skills to create your very own custom place cards, greeting cards and wall art. Ages 16+ welcome!

This fun, creative series begins on Thursday, May 4, and consists of three classes:

Day 1: Calligraphy Basics
Thursday, May 4

Learn the basics of calligraphy letter forms and the proper use of calligraphy pens. Beginning with the alphabet, learn to artfully create letters in upper and lower case. Attendees will take home an instructional booklet, a set of calligraphy pens and practice sheets so they can practice the letter forms in preparation for the next class.

Day 2: Flourishing & Connecting
Thursday, May 18

Learn to connect letters into flowing words and phrases, and add flourishes (swirls and swooshes) for emphasis and artistic flair. Attendees will take home a flourishing guidebook to add to their kit and use with their practice pens and sheets.

Day 3: Layout & Design
Monday, May 29

Learn the fundamentals of artistic layouts through an overview of graphic design basics. Then, put your newfound skills and knowledge into practice and create your own work of art. Attendees will receive a set of blank greeting cards and envelopes as well as 9” x 12” calligraphy cardstock to create their own artwork on.
