Private, one-on-one calligraphy lessons are perfect if you don't have the workshops you need available to you where you live. I'll "come to you" via the sorcery of live internet conferencing. It's easy! I send you a link to join me in a live meeting using my account (no need for you to download any program on your end).
We will focus our time together on exactly what you want to accomplish next in your calligraphy learning journey: simply getting started with pointed pen, improving your Copperplate, getting to know Italian Hand, analyzing your own writing, developing your own style, creating bounce that looks purposeful, adding balanced flourishing, digitizing your lettering... I am an open book when it comes to sharing anything I know. I encourage you to take full advantage of me!
After signing up, I'll email you to ask what times work best for your schedule and timezone. Since I work full time out of my home workshop, I'm pretty flexible and will do my best to accommodate your needs. We'll also get to know each other a little so that we can hit the ground running and maximize even our first hour together!
| ABOUT KESTREL |
My formal career training is in teaching. I have a master's degree in education and used to teach Spanish and math at a local high school and junior college. This background gives me the pedagogical knowledge to structure our time for best learning. I am a self-taught calligrapher who later received formal training from highly skilled calligraphers, including former White House Chief Calligrapher and multiple IAMPETH Certified Master Penmen. I love that I can now combine my career background with my love for calligraphy!
