Italic is the graceful, elegant handwriting of the Italian Renaissance.  Students use traditional tools — broad-edged dip pens and ink, rather than fountain pens or markers — in this beginner class which covers minuscule (small) and majuscule (capital) letters, numerals and punctuation. Letterform consistency and spacing are emphasized to help students develop their eye as well as their hand. By developing skill with the broad-edged pen, students will be ready to continue their study of Italic or try other calligraphic styles such as Blackletter (Gothic), Uncial, Carolingian and Foundational. (Note: this is a four-hour class with a half hour lunch break, so please bring your lunch.)
