Roman Hand

Roman Hand StyleWelcome to Calligraphy!  We are going to begin by learning the Roman Hand. This hand is very important for a few reasons, first the pen techniques and strokes that we learn for this hand, will also be used for the other hands.  Second, it is a great first hand to learn, since many of the strokes are easily put together to create a letter, simply put, a great hand to learn first!   Pictured above is an example of Roman Hand Calligraphy.  Each day, we will be covering something different, whether it be a stroke or technique, and we will be combining these to create the Roman Hand!  I hope you enjoy yourself while we begin this journey.
