Join instructor Risa Gettler to learn the art of Gothic Calligraphy at the Bravo School of Art.

Books were handmade and written in Gothic calligraphy from the middle ages to the revolution of the printing of the Gutenberg Bible. The historic and versatile Gothic lettering style is strong and rhythmic. It’s surprisingly easy to learn. Pre-lined paper and taught in family letters will enable you to write the Gothic alphabet by the end of class.

Class includes simple Gothic calligraphy projects, hand-outs that include exemplars, decorative variations, numbers, suggested reference books and websites, and samples of Gothic calligraphy ranging from medieval to modern applications.

Workshop Dates:
May 20, 2012 from 1pm - 5pm
August 2, 2012 from 1pm - 5pm

Bravo School of Art, 2690 Historic Decatur Rd Studio 206: Google Map.
