Description

I. COURSE DESCRIPTION

This course is an introductory study of Root Alphabets of Western Calligraphy, utilizing shaded writing instruments such as steel and felt tipped pens for writing and lettering.

II. COURSE OVERVIEW

The word calligraphy comes from two Greek words: Kallos, meaning beautiful, and grapheme, which means to write. Students will learn the fundamental strokes of different alphabets and will develop the skills to execute alphabets with the knowledge of letter cant, slant and stroke sequences. Students will develop these skills through in class lecture and participation.

III. MATERIALS OF INSTRUCTION

No formal textbook is required. A handout will be given to each student. Excerpts from sources, such as “Origin of the Serif,” “Reed Pen & Brush Alphabets,” and “The Trajan Inscription in Rome” by Father E. M. Catich and other sources will be used.

Students will be provided calligraphic pens, paper, alphabet plates and instructional papers as per your materials fee.

IV. COURSE LEARNING OUTCOMES

Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to:

1. Relate basic characteristics of the alphabet.

2. Identify basic alphabets, formal, informal, semi-formal, writing, lettering.

3. Execute formal Roman and Petrarch alphabets by writing with basic illumination.

Amy says, "I am a lifelong Artist from Davenport, Iowa, with a BA in Art from SAU. I love the Art of Calligraphy and studied with Fr. E.M. Catich. My artwork includes mixed media calligraphic pieces including 23K gold gilding with watercolor and pen and ink.

Artistic design services include: calligraphy, lettering, logo design, letterhead, business card design, brochure design and production, illustration, watercolor, interior design, art instruction, sculpture and varied commercial art marketing services.

Companies I have worked for include Hallmark Cards, Crown Advertising, Quad City Times, Lockwood Manufacturing & ePower Synergies. Teaching calligraphy is a passion as I have instructed courses for SAU ACCEL, and continue to teach at The FIGGE, Clinton River Arts Center, Bettendorf, IA and Moline, IL Libraries, as well as other venues in the Quad City area. Inspiration for my art comes from nature. Many own my calligraphic work because they appreciate the artistic design and the message meaning something special to them in their lives.

I am a founding Board of Directors member for The Art Legacy League and a CORE FACULTY, The Catfish Letter Arts School. "
