Sponsored by FRI, September 9,  6:30-8PM PST

NOTE: This is a week later than usual, due to the holiday attached to the previous weekend. 

No charge for these Study Group Sessions.

These sessions are led by members, sharing what they have learned. They do not claim to be masters.

Members and guests may participate in any sessions--no requirement to attend every session. The aim is to share knowledge with newbies or provide a refresher for experienced calligraphers.  

   This first session of SfC's membership year, we will review some basic structure and spacing tips. We will base our study on skeleton Roman capitals, both formal and stylized, inspired by the work of Peter Thornton. If we have time, we'll add some watercolor, just for fun.) The session will be led by Kristi Darwick. We plan to record this session. Kristi asks that you remind her!


1. Share our work--feel free to bring any work/practice you'd like to share that you feel will be of interest, whether related to Romans, or not. 

2. Review the day's topic

3. Share what we've done for the day (optional).
