Supply ListThis class is for both beginners and students who wish to refresh themselves with the basics. Known as both Roundhand and/or Engrossing Script, this will be a class to provide the basics and true fundaments of this beautiful script. Learning how to manipulate the pointed pen to make the down strokes thick and hairline upward strokes is the focus of this grateful script. Using the Zanerian Manual and the teachings of my mentor Senior Master Penman Mr. William Lilly, we will focus on the material referenced in the manual and what I have learned from Mr. Lilly as we learn to write this script. The morning will focus on the basic strokes for the lower case to learn those letters. The afternoon will shift to the capital letters and combining them with the lower case letters for appropriate spacing.
