This class introduces students to the basic strokes and fundamental building blocks of the alphabet. Students will end the class with an understanding of how lowercase, uppercase, and numbers are rendered in brush lettering and everyone will leave with their own calligraphed greeting card.

Mariah Fleming is a Boston-based calligrapher with a background in Psychology and Education. She started her calligraphy studio Mariah Jillian Calligraphy out of her true love for beautiful handwriting where she provides modern hand drawn calligraphy, brush lettering, watercolor, and design for everything from weddings and keepsakes, to commercial and custom work, and even custom art pieces for live events.
