Learn the beautiful style of script calligraphy called Copperplate in this 8-week session with Karen Roberts. Students will discover the flexibility of using a pen with a pointed nib dipped in ink to create classical letter forms. This style lends itself to creating hand-lettered pieces suitable for framing, making greeting cards, and addressing envelopes for special events. New students will incur a $30 supply fee payable to the teacher at the first class. Returning students will work on developing their personal style and small projects. Class dates are: June 12, 19, July 10, 17, 24, August 7, 14 and 21
For as long as we have gazed at the stars, we have wondered (and worried) about what may be living and lurking on other planets. This summer, we'll be exploring some of these fears with a 3 film series: Astrophobia.
Each film will be presented by a different PhD student from the University of Pittsburgh's film studies department.
Our June film Aelita, Queen of Mars will be introduced by Zhanna Budenkova.
Space is limited, so please reserve your seat in advance. Deluxe tickets include 2 slices of pizza (Cheese or Pepperoni) and a can of pop (Coke, Sprite, or Diet Coke) for $5.
