In today’s world emails and texts are the norm, schools are doing away with teaching cursive, and the handwritten note or snail-mailed card is fast becoming extinct.

If you are one who loves the personal touch of a beautifully written note on fine paper, sealed in an equally fine envelope, then this class is for you.

Students will learn the Italic cursive form, which conforms better to natural hand movement and requires less pen lifts than the traditional US method. We will then explore ways to embellish the cursive using flourishes and elegant capitals.

We will also write sample letters and learn some tips on how to address envelopes. Suggestions for paper, fine pens, and other embellishments will be given.

Materials Included!
