Studio Calligraphy Classes

with Barbara Close

Barbara Close introduces a comprehensive program in calligraphy and related art techniques. The program presents a logical course-study based on a solid foundation in historic and contemporary letterforms, layout and design, materials and tools, book design and business applications.

The courses are designed to be completed within a year, with a beautifully designed certificate of achievement at the end of the program. Students may enter the program at the beginning of each session, not mid-course.
