Calligraphy is more than ‘beautiful handwriting’ or ornate lettering. Learning calligraphy can lead to artful self expression such as creatively addressing envelopes and enhancing greeting cards, posters, and more. Practicing calligraphy is relaxing and therapeutic, helping to relieve stress, and can also improve motor skills.

Pointed Pen Classes

Pointed Pen Calligraphy with Bill Kemp

Bill Kemp teaches one- and two-day pointed pen calligraphy workshops at Pen and Pad, 8236 Menual NE, Albuquerque (located in the Hoffmantown Shopping Center on the corner of Wyoming and Menual). Each class comes with a workbook, designed to break down each script for the students to take with them after the class to study from.


September 10: Pointed Pen Uncial

The classes are from 9am – 5pm. There are only 9 students, so that provides more one-on-one instruction during the class. For more information, contact Pen and Pad at (505) 293-1144. Visit Bill's website.
