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.

THE PROGRAM

Join your FOTA friends for an opportunity to share and to see what other Guild Members have been learning and doing in online workshops.

FROM OUR PROGRAMS CHAIR, MARGARET AMOSS:

This is a timely meeting, for there are SO MANY wonderful workshops available online at this time. The ongoing coronavirus pandemic seems to have produced more opportunities for independent learning than ever before. Calligraphers are encouraged to explore the wealth of opportunities out there (one way to access information about online classes is through Online Classes: John Neal Bookseller This listing is updated weekly.) 

 

While online classes cannot provide the in-person camaraderie of learning among our local friends, where they excel is in the opportunity to learn among calligraphers all over the world. It is marvelous to learn in part by seeing what calligraphers from other countries and cultures are doing. Classes may be offered in real time or in a pre-recorded manner, but whatever the format handouts are usually included as they would be in an in-person class. Please, if you would like to share about your experience(s), let Margaret Amoss (Program Chair) know.
