ANNOUNCING OUR JANUARY UCA MEETING. . .

Our January Meeting starts a new year which we have dedicated to studying various scripts.  Most will be those written with a pointed pen––but not all!

 

Script-Tease is the title we have given to this year's endeavors...and it will be Fun, Fascinating and Super Exciting !!

We will meet Saturday, January 19, 2019

10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

at the Utah Cultural Celebration Center

1355 W. 3100 S. • West Valley City, Utah

 

Erika will introduce us to the Pointed Pen.  She will go over some important things to know, such as how to select nibs, hold the pen correctly, position ourselves and understand correct letter forms in order to develop confidence.

 

HERE'S A HEADS UP:  There will be bonus prizes for all those who have paid their 2019 dues on or before our January Meeting.  Remember, you can pay dues online with PayPal or a credit card on the HOME PAGE of this website.

After learning the basic strokes, Liz Margetts will help us use these strokes to make a decorative Mandala.
