An Introduction to Calligraphy

An Introduction to Calligraphy

Calligraphy is a kind of music not for the ears but for the eyes.’ It’s a visual art related to writing. It is the design and execution of lettering with a broad tip instrument, brush, or other writing instruments.

Intelligentsia, offers a brief tryst with Calligraphy on Oct 7th. We strongly believe that any art form, however complicated, can be mastered if practiced under expert guidance along with step-by-step instructions.

Attend a three hour workshop and learn two distinct fonts and a composition. ‘All participants will take home a piece of their composition. Material will be provided at the venue, just bring along your enthusiasm and learning spirit!

The workshop is conducted by Tina Rajpal Solanki, Founder of Intelligentsia, an experienced educator and counselor with over 15 years of experience. She is a Penkraft certified trainer in Calligraphy and Handwriting Improvement, and has been coaching young and adult alike. She finds calligraphy truly liberating and meditative in nature, and suggests it as a therapeutic tool in anger management and in alleviating anxiety. She also conducts parenting workshops and individual counseling sessions for couples and young parents.

Brush Lettering

Brush Lettering

Brush lettering is about creating letters,strokes and projects with brushpens or brushtip tools. Brush lettering is a beautiful craft that is a tribute to hand lettering and calligraphy. It is more like Modern Calligraphy with Brush Script.  While calligraphy is the domain of the purists, brush lettering is more freestyle – it involves the use of brushes and brush pens.

Course will include: Study of basic strokes, upper case, lower case, numbers, word formation and techniques to enhance your final project. The workshop would cover various techniques to use brushes and the fine distinction of pressure variations.

Materials provided : Practice Guide, Brushpens (pack of 12), a folder, A4 size coloured paper

Needless to say, the artist will load you with a plethora of creative ideas
