How does a Multi-Day Course work?

A Multi-Day Course meets multiple times over one or more weeks. Learners join the teacher in live video chat sessions at scheduled times. Outside of these sessions, they can take part in a classroom discussion group and message the teacher directly. Longer courses create more opportunities: real-time activities, engaging projects, and interaction with diverse classmates from other states and countries.

Class Experience

Are you learning calligraphy, a hand lettering beginner, but don’t know where to start? This faux calligraphy or fauxligraphy course is for you! The art of calligraphy takes time to master, time that a lot of us don’t have. You can still get that refined handwritten look by using a faux calligraphy technique that you can learn quickly and easily.  In this course, you will learn techniques to develop creative lettering. This is an introductory art class that focuses on handwriting styles that you can use for making signs and cards, writing in your journal or diary, or adding artistry to your note-taking and school projects.

Faux calligraphy is created by going over certain parts of your text with bolder strokes and filling it in to create the look of real dip pen calligraphy. The dip pen calligraphy requires ink and a special pen holder with a nib, the metal tip that holds the ink. Learning calligraphy takes a lot more time than you’d think- before you can start writing letters you have to understand the different strokes and the effects they achieve. While this is a great skill to learn you may not have the time. If that is the case, then faux calligraphy is the way to go.

This 40 minutes session covers a range of techniques like faux calligraphy. No experience necessary!
