Group Participation Intro to the "Secrets of Calligraphy"
I am planning on having calligraphy markers and paper for you to use at the meeting so you will have an opportunity to learn the big secret to calligraphy and to also practice some basic strokes. I will also provide you with an exemplar or two for you to take home. If you promise to practice, you too can be a calligrapher.

taught in public schools and then “graduated” to teaching
