Instructor: Lorrie Frear
This interactive, informal session will introduce participants to letter families and proportional relationships between letter groupings in the Chancery Cursive (Italic) lowercase alphabet. Led by Lorrie Frear, a professor in the School of Design at the Rochester Institute of Technology, participants will use calligraphy markers to complete a cohesive lowercase alphabet during the three hour session. The methods learned in this workshop can be applied to analyzing other calligraphic hands. This session will be fun, relaxed, and perfect for those with no prior calligraphy or lettering experience. Participants with prior experience may choose to practice the upper case letters during the workshop.
