Storytelling Through Calligraphy and a Live Demonstration
Featuring Christen Turney, Penwoman and Calligraphy Teacher
Stroke by stroke, nearly 150 calligraphers from around the world are scribing envelopes and mailing art to one another from lockdown through a worldwide calligraphy exchange. During this program, Christen Turney will share how this community of artists connect during this time of uncertainty. She will demonstrate how to scribe a calligraphy envelope in an elegant, traditional script and how to achieve a calligraphy look with items you have at home to pen your own handwritten message of encouragement.
The Arts@ODU Summer Series was developed to facilitate community connections through free, accessible programming, to highlight the strength and resilience of the arts at ODU, and to lift spirits during this challenging time.
