In today's digital environment of emails and text messages, our brains are overloaded with notifications, and addicted to little hits of dopamine as we scroll through social media. 

When I learned that handwriting has the same effect as meditation, I couldn’t wait to put down my phone and pick up a pen - and I hope you will, too. 

Even - especially - if you think your handwriting is bad, this class will help you collect your thoughts, and learn how to write beautifully and with intention. 

What we'll cover:

  • Brief history of Copperplate, its tools, and characteristics
  • Setting up your practice for success
  • Basic letterforms and component strokes
  • Lowercase and uppercase alphabet
  • Numbers and punctuation
  • Critiquing your own work & Troubleshooting

You'll walk away with a better understanding of cursive writing and calligraphy. With practice, you'll be able to use this skill to add personal touches to letters, invitations, journals, and presents.
