Learn the basics of calligraphy with visiting instructor Noel Dolan from Noel Dolan Graphic Design. This workshop is for beginners. If you've never picked up a calligraphy pen, this class is for you!

We will go over the very basics, including supplies, dipping the pen in ink, pressure and flow, and basic letter forms. This class is intended to keep things as simple as possible as you learn to hold and maneuver the calligraphy pen.

Noel began her passion for graphic design in elementary school with a bootleg copy of Photoshop and using her own hand drawn fonts to fill out homework assignments. This early interest evolved into a professional career that has spanned 14 years. In addition to running her own freelance business, Noel Dolan Creative, she currently works as the marketing department graphic designer at Pikes Peak Community College. Her love of typography drew her to hand lettering and calligraphy, which is self-taught thanks to worksheets from The Postman’s Knock blog. 

In her spare time, Noel drinks coffee, cooks yummy foods, cuddles her kitty, and travels the globe. She cites her worldly adventures as her number one source of inspiration for her design work.
