With the wonderful response and sellout of Anthem’s Fine Arts Calligraphy Work Shop, we have now expanded to include a second time slot!

If you’ve been interested in learning the art of calligraphy, or would like to try something new, enjoy a laid back Saturday afternoon at the Beginner’s Calligraphy workshop. This class is designed for those just starting out in calligraphy — whether you’ve picked up a pen before and done a little practicing, or don’t even know what a calligraphy pen looks like! Alissa of Feast Fine Art and Calligraphy will provide you with your own beginner’s calligraphy kit, and walk you through the basics: the tools you’ll need, forming foundational shapes, upper and lowercase letters, and how to take the beautiful art of handwriting home and continue to practice. You will even learn some of Alissa’s favorite tips and tricks, and have the time to ask her any questions that you may have! This is a perfect opportunity to learn a valuable new trade to employ, or even just gain a rare and fun life skill through an otherwise fabulous class with friends! The class will be in an intimate environment with 15 or fewer people.
