Welcome back to another year with the New Orleans Lettering Arts Association. We have some wonderful events planned for a year that includes a not to be missed opportunity to study with Reggie Ezell. If you have not already registered for this extraordinary year long course, there is still time. You can even take advantage of the installment plan by using PayPal.
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.
