American MENSA Annual Gathering (July 6-10)
Workshop Date: July 7th, 2022 Time: 1:30pm-2:45pm
The Nugget Casino Resort Sparks, NV
July 7th, 2022 1:30pm-2:45pm Workshop Description: In a short 20-minute video we will explore and be introduced to the many handwritten lettering characters of the globe. We will return to our simple, recognizable Roman alphabet, A to Z, created by King Charlemagne in Europe during the 8th century, way before computers and the internet existed. Our instructor, Carol, who carries a calligraphy pen with her wherever she goes, has been writing ever since she first learned the ABCs. Lettering, writing, and reading are the foundation of every society on Earth. During this session we will be working with Carol’s favorite tools to create our lettering using two pencils held together with a rubber band and a felt-tip Marvy Uchida calligraphy pen. Carol will be sharing how she works with these simple tools to write exciting affirmations that instill a joyfulness in living while encouraging others that they can do the same. Pencils, pens, practice sheets, and writing paper will be provided.
