Foundational Hand Traditional Calligraphy

Mary-Jane Roussel via Udemy

(3 Reviews)

Overview

This is a complete course that will take you from A to Z (quite literally) in learning and mastering this fundamental style of calligraphy. To quote a master (Edward Johnston), once you learn a round-hand (like this one), mastering other scripts, be they straight or sloping, will be relatively easy!

But, let's not put the cart before the horse. We'll study the Foundational Hand, letter by letter. The alphabet is broken down into groups and the letters are presented out-of-(alphabetical)-order. The idea is to study similar letters together. After a brief introduction and some must-have technical information, you'll do some warm-up exercises before going on to learn each of the 26 letters of our alphabet, first in lowercase, then in uppercase. And, so that you'll be able to address an envelope or write a phone number in Foundational Hand, we'll also learn how to write numbers in this style of calligraphy.

The course doesn't end there, though. You'll have samplers to work through and a pangramme to practise writing. After that, two short and simple projects are illustrated, to give you an idea as to how to use your newly acquired skills.

Grab your pen and let's get started!

If you believe in reincarnation, I must have been a monk-scribe in a former life! How else can this love for hand-drawn letters be explained?

As a fashion designer-in-training, calligraphy was an option I took in my final year. Since then, practising and teaching the art of beautiful writing has been one of my major occupations.

For more than twenty years, I have been giving calligraphy courses to adults and children in the south of France, where I now reside. I particularly like working in places steeped in medieval history (like the Chartreuse at Villeneuve lez Avignon) or in classrooms where kids are positively insatiable when it comes to learning to use pen and ink or other traditional tools such as the calame.

Online classes are now the main activity of the non-profit group that I preside.
