Fundamentals of Flourishing by Jake Weidmann
The Fundamentals of Flourishing is an indispensable course for novice and professional calligraphers who want to flourish like a master.
What if you could not only execute beautiful, free-flowing flourishes with confidence but design your own unique, artful compositions?
I believe that anyone can flourish and I will show you how by sharing the rich history of this art form, what's necessary to begin, an exclusively curated list of my trusted tools and materials, a breakdown of the most complex flourishes with my stroke-by-stroke approach and finally, guiding you into creating a final flourished masterpiece!
Maybe you don't consider yourself a "calligrapher" or you haven't picked up the pen in a while. Not to worry. I've designed my course for the beginnger and the pro alike. Whether it's your first time flourishing or you could do this in your sleep, every student has the opportunity to gain knowledge and expand their skills and confidence as an artist and calligrapher.
I have structured this course as a self-paced, comprehensive guide into flourishing as well as an anthology of the individual components that are referenced in the class. I want you to be able to use the knowledge here as a trusted lifetime resource for you as you venture further into your calligraphy journey.
You'll have the opportunity to look over my shoulder throughout this course as it was intentionally and artfully filmed to bring you into the intimacy of my calligraphy studio. Through the professionally captured angles of each video, you'll have an up-close look of proper pen grip, whole-arm movement, and more as I show you how I approach the art of flourishing.
You have built-in accountability and encouragement throughout the course as I'll be interacting with my students in the comment sections and more intimately through the course's private Facebook group.
