Learn modern calligraphy in this introductory class! This class is suitable for beginners (no experience necessary), but also for those who have been practicing on their own and would like to learn proper technique. In this class, we will cover the basics of using a dip pen, nibs and ink, basic upstrokes and downstrokes, the lowercase and uppercase alphabet, and the basics of combining letters into words. A simple modern alphabet will be used. You will learn HOW to write letters, not simply copy them, so that you can practice at home with confidence. You will receive a starter kit which includes a dip pen, two different nibs, a small pot of ink and a workbook written by Carrie Norris Lutke of Sparrow Lettering.

August 10th - Intro to Modern Calligraphy - CityArts

  • Because materials are purchased and room reservations are made in advance, there is a no cancellation policy.


    However, classes often have a waiting list. If you cannot attend for some reason, with at least 48 hours advance notice, there may be a way to fill your seat. If your seat does get filled from the waiting list, you will be refunded your ticket price.


    If due to illness or other last-minute reason and you cannot attend, your kit and workbook will be left at the venue's front desk for you to pick up.


    Please pick up your materials within 2 weeks due to space constraints for supplies at the venues.


    Please contact Carrie at with any questions! Thank you!

  • Calligraphy is an art form that takes patience and consistency, and I have found that under age 12, students are not able to have the control needed.


    Students enrolling under aged 15 must be accompanied by paying adult unless prior arrangements have been made with me. (This is a fun hobby and artform to learn together!)
