Calligraphy for Beginners with Emily Kouris

“Did you know one of the world’s oldest forms of communication is still widely used today? Calligraphy, the combination of visual art and communication, has roots tracing back to 200 BC and has influenced many cultures’ visual communication styles. The origins of calligraphy date back to ancient China during the Shang dynasty when the writing was often carved on turtle shells or animal bones!” – Calligraphy: Communication through the Ages

Join us for a four-class series where you will learn the basic techniques for the art of calligraphy!
