Calligraphy Fine Writing Course
Tues., April through May from 7 - 8 PM
Bernard Flanagan, classically trained in calligraphy by Royal Scribes at the Reigate School of Art in London, will instruct you in the finest scripts in this eight week course. Explore scripts from the first millennium Roman Capital, often called Eternal Letter, to second millennium medieval and renaissance alphabets. Materials provided.
Art Exhibit: Kathleen Miller in Oils and Mixed Media
Miller’s style may be described as Contemporary Impressionism with strong expressive and abstract influences. She uses color, texture and bold paint application to demonstrate not just the beauty and moods of the landscape, but the shifting perspective of the artist herself.
