Copperplate calligraphy is a style of cursive calligraphy. 
Unlike broad pen calligraphy styles, copperplate uses a pointed calligraphy pen. Copperplate alphabets are determined by the pressure applied to the pen. The more pressure applied in the copperplate style, the thicker the stroke. The hair-line strokes produced, contrasts beautifully with the thicker downward strokes.

Have you ever wanted to journal some of your vacations or special events? You’ll learn how to draw and write what you see. You don’t have to draw well to journal. We will create drawings, paintings, collages, and use other interesting techniques to add to your pages. You will be taught enough to get started on your journal. If you already journal, you can work on improvements or just get new ideas to make your journal better.
