You need not have good handwriting to be a successful calligrapher! Artist Judith Joseph will introduce you to the fine art of calligraphy, or beautiful lettering. You will learn to use a wedge-shaped pen to create the broad and narrow strokes that give calligraphic letters their rhythm and grace. In addition to writing in English, Judith will teach you how to write “Pesach” and “Seder” in Hebrew.
Joseph, a Northbrook, Illinois artist and painting instructor, specializes in the Ketubah (Hebrew marriage contract), and is the recipient of two Illinois Arts Council Fellowship Awards for her work in this genre. See her work at: https://www.judithjosephstudio.com/
