Modern Calligraphy
Reviewed by Jamea A. on 9/4/2019
Not what I was expected. This TWO HOUR class has a lot of potential. We only learned half of the eight strokes it takes to write the letters. Instructor did not formally go over the alphabets. Was give a sheet to trace with not one single direction on where or how to start. This was very discouraging. I was asking questions every 10 minutes. I wish I would have saved my time and money. The example the instructor was making on board were awful because "she wasn't centered" This class could really be great but go back to the drawing boars (pun intended).
