CALLIGRAPHY CLASSES IN THE WASHINGTON AREA
WCG members who teach calligraphy classes in the Washington
Sheila Waters private classes at 851 Boyle Road, Fairfield, PA 17320, two miles from Emmitsburg, MD (one hour from Baltimore or Rockville).
Instruction and individual help is given on any broad-pen style of calligraphy and with personal projects. Sheila teaches all day on alternate Saturdays throughout the year in her large studio with all her collected resources available for study. As instruction is entirely individual, students of all levels can come and go, as their commitments permit, between the hours of 10:30 am and 5:30 pm. Beginners are welcome and they can learn a lot from exposure to the ongoing work of more experienced students. There is no set curriculum.
As far as we know this is the only class of its kind on the East Coast.
Snacks are provided but bring your lunch. Class size is very small with a maximum of ten. Fee is $50 for each visit.
For dates contact Sheila at firstname.lastname@example.org.
