The Advanced Spencerian class is an extension of the Beginning Spencerian class for individuals interested in furthering their penmanship skills. The purpose of this class is to feature instruction that picks up where the Beginning Spencerian online class leaves of. American Ornamental Penmanship will be taught on an advanced level that will provide a depth to the student. The focus of the class will be alternate letterforms, advanced entry and exit strokes suitable for the underlying principal strokes that make up the capitals and a small bit of decorative work. We will NOT be going over the basic forms of the capitals themselves as we did that in the Beginning Spencerian class. The focus in this class is the letterforms themselves.
Skill Level: Due to the elevated level of instruction, the student must have either participated in a previous Spencerian class, or have a good understanding of the underlying principal strokes of the capital letterforms. 


Nikko G or Zebra G nibs are recommended for beginners. More advanced students may prefer to use a more lexible nib. An oblique penholder is recommended. If left-handed you may prefer to use a straight penholder depending on the amount of hook when you write. McCafery’s black ink or Old World Iron Gall ink. Good quality translucent layout paper, Borden & Riley, Canson, or Claire Fontane, a mechanical pencil .5 with extra lead, a small French curve if you have one - not a necessity, a kneaded eraser, Viva paper towels and something to clean your nibs.
