Calligraphy is both beautiful to look at and relaxing to write.

If this sounds familiar, then this is the class for you! Let Pui Yee take you through the basics and fundamentals of calligraphy--breaking down the strokes and letters and teaching you how to form words too! Copperplate, the more traditional and stricter big brother of Modern Calligraphy is such a beautiful script.
