Possible Upcoming Calligraphy Class Demo

I have just been thinking about all the wonderful results from my students in the Calligra-Fun class and it has spurred me on to think about an online calligraphy class. I would go into this with some trepidation wondering if people would think it was too hard, too much practice, not fun enough, not what they expected---all those things keep rolling around in my mind. And also with me not right there to tweak little strokes and to give constructive advice. But I have a  passion for calligraphy and teaching people to catch the spirit of this wonderful ancient and historical art that has been around really from the beginning of written history. Like I said in the video, calligraphy is a journey, it is a marathon and not a sprint but, oh!,  the rewards for those who condition themselves, persevere and stay in the race. It will change your artistic life. And the journey is fun and exciting! It never gets old, and there is always something else to learn.

So below is a little vlog with some thoughts and examples I have about filming a class and the progression that I am planning to take. I want it to be fun along the way with color and a stopover for some embellishments and doodlings.  So here is a little demo.

UPDATE :  I just found out from Jane Farr, a wonderful calligrapher and blog buddy, informed me that these Parallel Pens (shown in the video) can actually be filled with archival and lightfast fluids and can be used for just about every calligraphy project you might have. Yea!!! I will study up on this one!


Update #2--Check out Sue Krei today. What a great Journal page and some great Calligra-FUN letters!!

Hi
Just found your blog through a link on Prairie Emporium...your calligra fun class does look like fun. I've learned calligraphy (the formal kind) years ago...so this would be a fun, whimsical twist to that. I signed up on Creative Workshops and look forward to exploring the site and workshops.

I would love to take a calligraphy class. I have played around with it since I was little, I took a calligraphy class for kids around 12 years old and really enjoyed trying back then. I know I don't do it correct now I have just played around with the little I learned. I would love to learn the real way. I love to play with letters. Your Calligra-fun class has been a blast. I am getting better and better. Thank-you for providing us with your workshop!
