Welcome to the CalligraFĂ©e On-line Calligraphy and Art classes !
Jane invites you to join her for entertaining and detailed classes in
Fantasy Art, Creative Illumination and Calligraphy.
These Art classes are designed for children, but — of course —- adults may also join the School!Â You may be a beginner and completely new to studying art, or maybe you love to draw but youâ€™d like to have a little help in learning to give form to you imagination.Â Or, perhaps, youâ€™re already an artist, but youâ€™d like to broaden your horizons and learn new skills and stylesâ€¦ Well, this is the School for you!!
Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â
Weâ€™ll learn to draw — first very simply and then with more precision — unicorns and dragons, fairies and mermaids, flying horses and griffons and sea-monsters!Â Weâ€™ll create wonderful decorated letters, like the illuminations in medieval manuscripts, inhabited by all our favourite fantasy creatures and bursting with swirling vines, smiling flowers, toadstool houses, and all sorts of animals: cats and dogs, horses and dolphins, birds and butterflies!Â Janeâ€™s illustrations are filled with crazy and humorous life, with complicated motifs and also simple, elegant designsâ€¦. Â plus, Celtic interlace and spirals — not at all difficult to master! — to add to your illuminations!
Calligraphy is one of Janeâ€™s favourite subjects, and she will guide you through the steps of learning to write spikey Gothic, friendly Humanist, romantic Italic, and very-medieval French BĂ˘tarde!
The courses Jane offers in her on-line Art School consist of modules of SIX classes (each about 15 to 30 minutes in length) for each subject or project.Â Â Â A new module will be added every month, but you have access to each module you take for THREE MONTHS.
Jane offers you a free introductory video-class, showing you how to design and color (just with colored pencils this time!) a beautiful little illuminated letter, with simple leaf-motifs —- just to get you started, and to experience Janeâ€™s style of sharing her skills.
Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â
Then, if you decide to join the Art School, you will receive the first module of SIX classes (each about 15 to 30 minutes long) which guides you through the steps of creating an illuminated book-mark bearing a personâ€™s name, decorated with fantasy creatures, and even a small panel of Celtic interlace.Â Â Â Details of the complete content of this and following modules is available in the â€śCourse Contentâ€ť page.
Each module of six On-line Calligraphy and Art classes costs only 9â‚¬ (thatâ€™s about 11 US dollars, 8 pounds sterling, 14 Australian or Canadian dollars, 15 New Zealand dollars — check your currency on internet, as conversions can change slightly from day to day).Â Payment is made by credit card or Paypal, and yes — these are very inexpensive classes!Â But itâ€™s true: thatâ€™s all you pay! For 9â‚¬ you will receive SIX classes (more than 2 hours of teaching) to which you will have full access for THREE MONTHS, to watch as often as you wish, to stop and study, to revisite and review according to your tastes and your time.Â You can watch them all immediately, or go at your chosen pace: one per week, two per week, one per fortnightâ€¦.Â Itâ€™s up to you!Â Each classÂ includes handouts, as well, that you can download, print and keep.Â Materials will be suggested for each lesson, but rest assured, you probably have most of what you need already (pencils, paper,Â eraser, colored pencils, water color/gouache paints…).
Jane has made these On-line Calligraphy and Art classes very inexpensive, because she wants ALL CHILDREN to be able to afford to join her School.Â She has taught classes like these, in person, for many years, and the cost is normally between 10â‚¬ and 30â‚¬ per class per student!Â So SIX classes for NINE EUROS is a special opportunity to study with Jane, and to learn these beautiful and enjoyable skills of fantasy art and creative lettering!
New modules of six classes each will be posted on line every month (you will be informed by email), and these will be the same price:Â 9â‚¬ for each module of six lessons, available for three months from the day you register for that module.
Looking forward to working with you — See you very soon in Calligrafee Art School!!!
