1. Introducing Principal Shades #1-3
A few years ago I became incredibly interested in the rich history of calligraphy, penmanship, and lettering in America. I recognized that there was not a place where people could receive contemporary training in the styles of penmanship from that period, and I set out to make this school.
From working with thousands of students both in-person and online since 2015, I know that if you dedicate yourself to these materials in these programs, beautiful script is waiting within your pen. I'm so excited to get to walk this path with you, and I'm really looking forward to seeing the amazing work you're capable of. See you in class!
David’s teaching methods have resulted in some pretty impressive results as evidenced by his students. In my opinion, he is one of the finest modern-day practitioners of Engrosser’s script.
