Description:

Often overlooked by calligraphers who seek inspiration from historical scripts, the Dutch masters of the 17th century never fail to astonish and motivate. Not only weris truly original script, and look at its place in modern design. We will analyze what makes the design so dynamic, and learn how to adopt the best parts of what we like about the script—feeling free to mix and match our favorite letterforms from other sources—to create a hand of our own! Learn why the Dutch masters were, and continue to be, so highly regarded by calligraphers the world over. e they virtuosos at rendering most European styles, their technical mastery paved the way for the emergence of pointed pen scripts a century later.

The hand quite distinctly their own is our subject. In this class we will decode the construction and decorative aspects of this truly original script, and look at its place in modern design.
