Exercises for Calligraphy with Jennifer Isobe
We're not talking about drawing ovals or practicing pressure and release here. We're talking about exercises for your body so that when you are busy doing calligraphy you don't have to deal with sore muscles! Jennifer will take us through some simple exercises that we can all do at home prior to and during our time spent at our desks. After we've done some beginning exercises, we'll look at Freestyle Minuuscules with Wendy Cowley These fun minuscules are drawn letters with relatively wide interior spacing to allow for lots of fun decorations. We'll first draw our letters with a pencil and then go to town with adding embellishments! Midway through we will stop for another short exercise session. Hopefully, we will all find that when we make time for exercising we don't have sore muscles when we finish. Supplies to Bring: Pencil Ruler Eraser Fine Line Pen (e.g. Pigma or Staedtler fineliner or similar) 2 sizes are nice if you have them.) Paper (marker paper or bond paper or ....)
