About the Program:
Free lesson: A Taste of Copperplate
Copperplate is a beautiful script which was historically etched into copper for printing. Written with a pointed pen, it is popular for addressing envelopes and is a mainstay of formal invitations, greeting cards, as well as other print applications. This elegant lettering can be composed in its most basic style or flourished for a very decorative effect.
Participants of this class will learn to draw a sampling of the basic copperplate letterforms, using pencil. The use of a copperplate pen and nib will be demonstrated. This is a formal type of handwriting, and its many variations make it popular among both men and women.
