Fifth Maine Regiment Museum

Taught by Tory Tyler-Millar, an art teacher with over 30 years experience.Using a calligraphic marker pen to render the thick and thin lines of calligraphic lettering, participants will learn three different lettering styles: Simple Roman, Italic, and Gothic. After practicing, participants will create a calligraphic piece.

Please bring a poem, words from a song or your own creation of at least 10 words but not a long piece. Using your written reference, you will create a decorative first letter and then use a learned lettering style of your choice to complete your project.

Class size will be limited, and interested students should register in advance by contacting Tory at torytm@maine.rr.com

The class is a fund-raiser for the Fifth Maine and costs $60. Students should bring a lunch or snack and a beverage.
