Class Recap: Modern Calligraphy with Paulene Cruse of Leen MachineCalligraphy

No matter the words, they always look better in beautiful handwriting, right? At least they do with calligraphy. 
Last night Paulene of Leen Machine Calligraphy  taught a Modern Calligraphy Class.   
Each student was provided with the tools needed to get started on their new skill (pen, nibs, ink, wipes, and guidelines). 

First, they practiced making basic strokes which was followed by them tracing the lower and uppercase letters of the alphabet. 

Once they were comfortable, they started to freehand and create their own personal style. 
Playing around with white ink.
Throughout the class Paulene instructed the students on how to properly hold the pen, ink flow, and provided them with sources on where to buy ink and nibs. 

Happy Students!
