Amy's calligraphy class was excellent. She thoughtfully explained everything so that I could easily understand the technique. It was fun to try something new and now that I've practiced I can actually make beautiful handwriting for my homemade cards. I totally recommend this class. The best part was practicing on my own later because I didn't realize how relaxing and therapeutic artistic writing could be.

We enjoyed the calligraphy class! I felt encouraged how fast I was able to start this! It would have helped us to go through practicing the letters a little slower.  I liked the casual feel of the online session, it was fun!

I have always thought of myself as a calligraphy artist because as a teen I had a calligraphy pen and played around with it. Taking this course really opened my eyes in a fabulous way. I understand now the physics and logic of calligraphy, and how elegant and clean it is. Amy laid out the plan and then was clear, concise and helpful with her instructions. I really enjoyed the friendly “sitting down for coffee” tone and quality of her voice, and her printout package was super helpful. I am looking forward to making time to meditatively practice my strokes and then being able to use what I’ve learned in cards and letters, and even notes to my loved ones.
