The meeting was very well attended and featured a presentation on IAMPETH 2019 (International Association of Master Penmen, Engrossers, and Teachers of Handwriting) by FotA member-at-large Maria Turk and Wilson Allen. After the presentation, Maria led us through a fun graphite activity and Wilson shared a project he put together at IAMPETH. 

Beautiful Art by Margaret Amoss!
