)-- Jan Hurst Calligraphy & Design recently spoke on calligraphy for The Frasier History Museum in Louisville, and will be doing a paper arts presentation for The Jeffersonville (Indiana) Public Library on March 21st.
Louisville's J.B. Speed Art Museum arranged for Jan Hurst to present the basics of calligraphy for a greeting card class they held in December at The Frasier History Museum. Children and adults attended the class.
On March 21st, Hurst will talk about calligraphy and paper crafting at the Jeffersonville Township Public Library for a group of adults in the third of a continuing series, "ArtSpace: Learn Create Enjoy!" The series was kicked off this month by artist Ray Day.
Hurst says, "I enjoy speaking and demonstrating to small groups as a way of spreading the word about calligraphy, the art of beautiful writing." She has been a calligrapher for 35 years, and has studied with most of the modern masters of the art. She is proficient in all styles, but now prefers the specialized pointed pen styles of lettering often associated with The Declaration of Independence and now used extensively for weddings.
Hurst also shares information about calligraphy and weddings on her "weddingletterlady" blog and "Louisville Calligraphy and Art" FaceBook page.
