Location: The Art Studio; 111 Elk Ave Crested Butte, CO 81224

It’s back to the future with old school skills! Acquire new techniques using uber-old-fashioned methods of pen and ink. As long words have been written, the wonderful world of calligraphy – which simply means “beautiful writing” – has been engaging folks of all walks of life. Laura Elm studied calligraphy with a spry 90 year old scribe who showed up to class every week in a scholar’s robe. She promises not to do that… We will however go over all the underlying principles with care and exactitude. All Levels. Age 12+. Instructor: Laura Elm.  

 
This class is offered in partnership with Western State Colorado Univerisity's Extended Studies Program. Click "Register" to enroll via their online system or call 970.943.2885 to register via phone.
