As a group, we strive to share a mutual interest in and enjoyment of the art of calligraphy. We also meet regularly in order to practice the art and techniques of beautiful handwriting. We enjoy gathering and passing on information and ideas regarding calligraphy amongst our members. We endeavor to increase the general public awareness of calligraphy as an art form.
What We Do
Both guilds have a variety of artists, beginners to advanced, that dearly love this art form. One of their major goals is the “gathering and passing on information and ideas regarding calligraphy amongst our members.” That’s why at every meeting we will be either looking at lettering, practicing the techniques, or possibly even learning artistic approaches to use along with our lettering.
Why become a member? Besides the monthly meetings where we practice and learn new artistic techniques every month, members also receive a monthly newsletter and a discount on workshops that their guild offers. These classes range from local to international teachers and from basic to advanced lettering or artistic approaches to the art of calligraphy.
