Copperplate calligraphy has become wildly popular.  So this year we will focus our general meetings on demonstrating this beautiful hand.  The September meeting will be an introduction to Copperplate.  It will include the very basics of using the pointed pen, the pressure and release technique and the lowercase letters.  This is a wonderful opportunity for beginners who have always wanted to learn to write in Copperplate script.  It also offers more advanced calligraphers the chance to hone their skills.
