Please note: separate registration is needed for each study group session. 

We want to encourage and motivate our members to create finished pieces. We'll learn about design principles and how we might apply them.

   And, watch for workshops/classes that can supplement what we learn in these sessions! Your input is welcome, regarding design topics you'd like to study. 

Study Group sessions are usually led by members, sharing what they have learned--we're all learning together! From time-to-time, we will have guest presenters.

We plan to record this session. Kristi asks that you remind her!

General Agenda

1. Share our work.

3. Review the day's topic: Focus on specific principles/elements of design. For this session, we'll cover Balance and Rhythm, both as it applies to art in general, and to our calligraphy pieces.  Kristi will lead this session.

4. Another chance to share and invite critique (always optional).

We strongly encourage participants to join our private Facebook group, Let's Make Finished Pieces!, so that you can interact with other Study Group participants and you may request critiques from other members. If you need help with joining, please contact Kristi or Nan at SDworkshopsteam@societyforcalligraphy.org.

Month's Project: We'll continue with our ongoing projects, and start new ones, at our own pace. Please consider sharing your progress during our "show and tell" at the beginning or end of the session. 

SUPPLY LIST: For your notes/sketches

  • Paper for sketching--printer, layout, a sketchbook, etc.
  • Pencil, eraser, ruler
  • A short quote or phrase--we'll be sketching thumbnails
  • Optional: Colored pencils or watercolor supplies (anything to add color for indicating space)

Paid/official honorary SfC Membership is required for these sessions.

Zoom invitation will be sent a day in advance.

It's not guaranteed that you'll receive the invitation beforehand, if you sign up the day of the session, but you will receive the link to the recording. . .
