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.

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 also conducts parenting workshops and individual counseling sessions for couples and young parents.
