Join us in person for Learn the ABCs of Calligraphy on Tuesday, April 12 at 10 AM.

Try your hand at creating greeting cards from the heart. In this 90-minute interactive session, calligraphy artist Lynda Chandler will teach you the basic strokes of traditional calligraphy to create the alphabet. You’ll soon be able to use your new skills to pen heartfelt sentiments to your loved ones, whether it’s celebrating Easter, St. Patrick’s Day, graduation season, weddings, get-well wishes or just a lovely card to say, “thank you for being a friend.” This traditional form of writing is not only elegant to receive, but you’ll find the process of learning and practicing the strokes meditative and relaxing.

By participating in this session, you can expect to:

  • learn the tools for the basics of traditional calligraphy.
  • create a handmade watercolor card to gift to someone special in your life
  • receive take-home worksheets for additional home practice.

This program is presented by Lynda Chandler and hosted by the Winter Park Health Foundation.
