The Art of Calligraphy: Calligraphy is more than putting pen to paper. Calligraphy develops the brain in a particular way of thinking unique to using the hand. It is the basis of art on the computer according to Steve Jobs and involves a lot of pre-thinking as in “think before you ink”, skills that translate into many other areas of life. It changes the way your mind works and builds new neural pathways. And it’s beautiful. Daily topics include Ink Dippers, Doodlers, Fold ‘Em and Back to Nature. Come find out what all those mean.
