MEETINGS

Atlanta's Calligraphy Guild

General membership meetings are held five times per year:

September, November, January, March, May

 on the second Monday of the month (unless otherwise advised)

The guild is planning to keep to our regular schedule of General Meetings - we will be meeting virtually, via Zoom, until it once again is safe for us to meet in person.  The great benefit to this is that our members who live outside the Atlanta Metro area will be able to join us!  Programs are under discussion and we hope that  you will enjoy the fun instruction we have planned!

 

As they say…Zoom is the next best thing to being there!  Stay tuned to your e-mail or to this page for more information.
