A Teacher's Guide to American Calligraphy: 1983.
This document presents a brief history of the Society of Scribes and describes procedures for the 1-day workshop, master apprenticeship method, of calligraphy instruction. Calligrapher-instructors using this method include: Lili Cassel Wronker, who encourages straight edge pen point exercises; E. J. Carroll, who focuses on the commercial client and artist relationship; and Robert Boyajian, who presents a technique for left handed calligraphers. Calligraphy as an art with practical, vocational applications is advocated. Calligraphy classes at the Art Students League in New York, and Calligraphy Gatherings that incorporate lectures and demonstrations, workshops, and presentations by major scribes are described. The paper concludes with a list of Regional Calligraphy Societies. (MM)
