Carolingian and Variations
The basic version of Carolingian we will start with has everything to do with directness, rhythm, and enjoyment (fun). Twenty-one of the twenty-six letters are done in a single stroke. We will generate contemporary versions changing not only the forms but the writing implements used to make them as well.
Beginners through advanced welcome.
Reggie Ezell is a well respected teacher of calligraphy, and has traveled extensively presenting his year-long courses, Twenty-Six Seeds to Grow and From Primitive to Modern. In the last few years, he has created DVD’s of the basic alphabets and accompanying portfolios with exemplars, instructions, guidelines, stroke sequence guide, and nib equivalency guides. The Carolingian DVD and Portfolio (a $25 value) are included in the supply fee for the class.
