Magical words: ancient Chinese seal script! Have you ever looked at these wonderful characters closely? How are they constructed? Can they teach us new ways to shape and arrange Latin letters? Can words become images again? The answer is a resounding “Yes”! We will look at the construction of seal script characters and apply what we learn to Latin letters. This is a fantastic course for anyone interested in putting our alphabet together in new ways. If you have wondered how to create new textures and a different kind of flow from one letter to the next, this is the course for you. Series 1 and Series 2 together form a very good introduction to my way of teaching calligraphy. They are recommended (but not required) for anyone planning to take Series 3 – 8.

Student Ratings & Reviews
Not only is Brody's work very varied and inspiring but the student work posted in the gallery is terrific. It's amazing how one seed can germinate into so many different explorations!
The critiques are also very constructive sometimes he reassembles submitted work turning it into much stronger compositions to illustrate his point. Even my husband, whose desk is next to mine is impressed (he paints but doesn't do calligraphy) when he overhears the lectures or critiques.
This journey is a great growing experience.
