If learning calligraphy is in your plans for 2015, start right away with a course in a basic, versatile calligraphic script. Michele Nidenoff’s Foundational course will run for five Saturday afternoons, Jan. 24 and 31, Feb. 1, 21 and 28 from 1:00 – 3:45 at Neilson Park Creative Centre.
Our first meeting for 2015 has had a date change: Please come and join us as we investigate chalkboard lettering on Sunday, January 18th starting at 1:00. We’ll be meeting as usual in Studio A West.
Also consider coming to the NPCC AGM on Sunday, January 11 at 2:00. There are changes afoot at NPCC and you’ll want to hear about them. As well, it’s a good opportunity to meet people from the other resident groups.
All the best as the year ends and we welcome 2015!

Once my client selected their desired option, they received the final files for high resolution production. Continue reading →
