Calligraphy for Sheer Enjoyment
Douglas Boyd, Guest presenter

At our May general meeting, calligrapher and instructor Doug Boyd will show us how to breathe fresh life into our favorite calligraphy style and introduce us to the potential of the world of “Letter Art.” Examples will be shown along with simple work-along demonstrations. Information on tools and materials will be shared. Learning calligraphy as “Letter Art” can be the source of a lot of fun, skill satisfaction and most of all, personal enjoyment. With this newfound way of doing things, a lot of the pressure and stress is done away with, and, Doug says, “You might just find yourself enjoying a new way to relax!”
