About Course


The third series will look at all that is inky, spontaneous and full of life: the calligraphic line as a voyage of discovery. We will begin with some outliers in the history of Latin letters, looking at how a line can move and shift instead of following a predictable path. This series will look at calligraphy as a process of drawing as much as of writing. Letters are shapes that you can alter radically without losing legibility entirely.

I really enjoyed working through these challenging weeks. The feed back from the tutor on all works was especially helpful.

I got fantastic fun trying to do expression lines, it was not easy to imagine how far we can go, but you really give us a lot of freedom to decide where we want to stop. I enjoy this very much, and I think it opens our minds to join our souls. Thanks for the opportunity!

These courses are adding great fun to my life. They open doors to self exploration that unravel millions of possibilities. The "expressive line" focuses on the power a line can have to convey whatever emotion you want to portray. The variety of work that this premise inspired in the Student Gallery work is really amazing. Brody has a real gift for explaining and orchestrating these abstract notions and encouraging a deep range of explorations by the students. I can't wait for the next session!
Brody really knows how to explain non-familiar letterforms so that anyone can understand them and love them.
