Italic Calligraphy (online)



In this course, we go back to basics with the italic script looking at the essential features that enable us to write the script beautifully. There'll be basic warm up exercises before an in-depth look at every letter. Capitals are also shown. The script will be applied to a greeting card and other ideas will be given. There's also a bonus lesson on the italic script in historical manuscripts.
