American Cursive Handwriting
Handwriting is and will always be important- for the purpose of personal communication, artistic expression, and as a human vehicle to retain information. Handwriting develops the skill of cognitive thought and promotes knowledge retention far more than keyboarding. Unfortunately, many of the current “styles” of handwriting are inefficient and promote the poor use of hand and wrist muscles that can lead to carpal tunnel syndrome and tendonitis. Traditional Penmanship - American Cursive Handwriting - has been, and remains, the most attractive, muscle-friendly, and efficient method of turning thought into the visible language of handwriting.
In this brief workshop, noted Master Penman Michael Sull will share the fundamental techniques and practice exercises of this style that was taught in American education for over 75 years. Copies of his new book, “The Art of Cursive Penmanship”, featuring a handwriting program of self-study for adults, will be available, in addition to the workshop handouts.
If you wish to improve your own handwriting, or be better prepared to help others with their handwriting, this workshop is for you!
No prior experience is required.
Workshop supply kits include a pencil, pen, paper, and handouts.
Also available for use will be additional pens, pencils, fountain pens and, optionally, dip pens (nib and ink). Students may also bring their favorite writing tools.
