Calligraphy Covered for Teens & Tweens

  • TypeEd 145 Valley Street Pasadena, CA, 91105 (map)

This class is for teens and tween students ages between 10 and 18 years old only. There are two sessions for this course: Saturday July 28 from noon to 2:30pm, and Sunday July 29 from noon to 2:30pm. When you sign up your tween or teen for this class, be sure they can attend both days.

Occasionally, circumstances call for you to pick up a pen and write beautiful letters to fully capture the elegance and expression of the hand-written word. No matter what your penmanship looks like, you’ll learn everything from basic strokes to full alphabets, connecting letters, and create letterforms in classical or modern freestyle calligraphy to enhance your skill set and expand your fundamental knowledge of script letterforms.

Learn techniques of pointed pen calligraphy, practice calligraphic techniques, and grip, posture and more. 

Materials and snacks will be provided. Please let us know via email if you are right or left handed. Feel free to bring any tools and supplies that you may already own to use.
