Athens offers calligraphy class


Calligraphy is the art of decorative handwriting. It is a skill that can beautify almost anything from creating invitations, decorating an art journal, to enhancing a signature. In parts of the world, calligraphy has long been a major art form equal to sculpture or painting.

Calligraphy will be taught at the next Art on Thursday, April 13, offered by Athens Arts.

The instructor will provide all supplies needed to learn calligraphy, an elegant writing form.

The class will be April 13. Participants can choose either an afternoon session (1-3 p.m.) or an evening session (6-8 p.m.). The class is open to anyone 12 years and older. Cost is $35.

Classes meet at Athens Arts, 216 E. Main St., Crawfordsville.
