Hello-Donna Jeanne Koepp of White Wolf Studio
« on: October 29, 2013, 11:54:11 AM »
Thank you for this forum.

I'm Donna Jeanne Koepp and I'm an ecclectic artist who loves illustration, lettering, book arts and certainly calligraphy.

I live near Reno, Nevada and am fortunate to have a wonderful calligrapher in my city who is also a dear friend. I've taken every class she offers and recently branched out to some online classes in pointed pen (which I adore).

I belong to the Friends of Calligraphy guild in San Francisco and just this last weekend traveled to Mystic Connecticut to join the Mystic Calligraphers in a wonderful workshop.

I look forward to being a part of this online community and hopefully can contribute where I can.

Hi Donna Jeanne,
Thanks so much for joining the forum. You are an adventurous artist! CT is beautiful this time of year. I hope you enjoyed your workshop. I looked at your website and your illustration is amazing. Do you spend time on storybird.com? My youngest loves it and it has really helped with her writing. I love it for admiring all the artists.

We usually host an international calligraphy artist in February here in Sarasota, FL (right near Siesta Key Beach, the #1 ranked beach in America). Unfortunately, next Feb we won't be hosting anyone but perhaps one year you can travel here for a workshop.

Looking forward to seeing your lettering work! Welcome to the forum!
Truly, Erica

I met Donna in a Harvest Crittenden class!  So nice to see you here, Donna.  We need to spread the word to the other 'Little Acorns'.  ;)

Thank you Erica, Lisa and Joy,

I'll check out storybird.com sounds intriguing for sure, Erica.

I'm excited to see a forum of young calligraphers come together. There is always a conversation amoung some of us wondering if younger people will take up the craft since they don't even teach handwriting in shcool anymore. Well, I think using new technology young people relate to is key. And this type of forum is a great way to go.

Can't wait to contribute.

Nice to meet you, Donna!

How do you like Friends of Calligraphy guild? I found it online before I moved to the Bay Area and am interested in it.

Hi Donna,

Welcome to the forum! Handwriting is taught at my school up until 3rd grade. Then students have a choice of using cursive or print. Unfortunately, many students shift right back to printing. I usually encourage my 5th graders to use handwriting, but they tell me it slows them down...
