ART 301 CALLIG - Calligraphy
Description Grades 10-12 Fine Arts Elective
Semester Course

Calligraphy is a type of art related to writing. It could be called the art of fancy lettering. Calligraphy, however, is not just beautiful handwriting. The relevance of calligraphy lies in the human need for expression, designing, drawing and crafting. Calligraphy is an art form in which patience and attention to detail are more important than artistic talent. You do not have to be a good ‘artist’ to be good at calligraphy; it is a skill you can acquire. Students will improve their concentration, will learn to think methodically, and will learn to be more artistic and creative.

Students will learn the basic calligraphy skills during this semester course. Students begin by drawing upper and lower case letters and progresses to designing greeting cards along with creating scripture and poetry drawings using the skills learned in this course.
