Classwork: For Classes 8-10
We will be starting our final project, you will be choosing a quote which you will write in the Roman hand. It can be a quote from your favorite song, poem, or an inspirational saying. Please keep it school appropriate and give credit to the person who said it.
Step one: begin writing your quote on lined paper.
- Keep your letters evenly spaced
- Keep your pen strokes uniform
- keep your words evenly spaced
- keep your letters the same height
Step two: cut out each line of your quote and tape the lines onto another piece of lined paper, you can setup the quote how you like.
Step three: using the light box, trace your quote onto a piece of calligraphy paper.
Step four: add flourishes and embellishments around your quote.
