Learn the art of creating beautiful letters in the Online Introduction to Copperplate Calligraphy course.
Taught by calligrapher Christen Turney, you’ll learn to write the basic strokes, minuscule and majuscule (or, lowercase and uppercase) alphabets and numbers in this classic pointed pen script. Copperplate calligraphy is perfect for wedding invitations, signs, cards, envelopes, framed quotes and more. You’ll become familiar with the tools and tricks of the trade, experiment with different types of ink and nibs, practice layout and stringing together words and sentences and learn terminology that will help you progress in this art. Each week, your homework will be reviewed by the instructor and/or a calligraphy tutor. This feedback will help you improve from week to week.
This class is great for calligraphy beginners as well as those who have a little experience with pointed pen and want to finesse their work and learn more structured writing.
