Introduction to Modern Flow Calligraphy with Caitlin Dundon
A fantastic introduction to modern pointed pen calligraphy. includes instruction on how to use pointed pen and ink, as well as how to create both upper and lower case individual alphabet letters and numbers.
Pointed pen calligraphy is unique with its varying line weights, elegant loops and flourishes.
Students will learn how to use black ink and a straight penholder (which can be used by both right and left-handed writers) to create the unique thick and thin elegance that is characteristic of the pointed pen style.
Caitlin Dundon offers a teaching style in Modern Flow Calligraphy that uses the smooth flow of cursive you learned as a child, rather than the complete lifting of the pen off paper for different strokes like Copperplate teaches. This style of calligraphy is easier for beginners and allows for softer more relaxed hand, shoulder and elbow movement. There is less stress on the body and the brain as this technique allows for more creative lettering styles. Students do not have to imitate or copy exactly each stroke to perfection so there is less stress and more creativity and enjoyment of the process.
The focus is on allowing the letters to flow to create lovely lines and loops and allowing students to create their own lettering style. www.handwrittenlife.com
