Intro to Monoline Uncial Calligraphy

In session 1, you will learn Monoline Uncial using a pencil (or marker).  The monoline technique is a great way to learn the basic forms of any script. It is also a fun way to change up your writing style using everyday writing tools such as a pencil or marker or fountain pen. In session 2, coming in the next rotation, I will introduce you to pointed pen uncial with some warmup exercises. Then, we will go through the script with a pencil and then ink up a nib!
