Hello from the Beautiful Eastern Shore of Maryland
« on: August 15, 2019, 04:24:13 PM »
Hi Everyone!  I am really glad to be here and look forward to getting to know everyone, asking lots of questions, and learning a lot. I am new to calligraphy so I have a lot to learn.

After a lifetime of believing that I had no artistic talent I have begun to draw and wish to label some of my drawings.  My specific interest at this time is learning to print in Hebrew. 

I live on the Beautiful Eastern Shore of Maryland.  And yes, Beautiful is an official part of itís name.  (At least as far as I am concerned).  :-)

Welcome, Brad!  Isn't it funny how many people believe they have no artistic talent?  I'm glad you've finally discovered yours!

Welcome Brad! I would love to learn and write Hebrew as well someday. Are you looking to write biblical or modern? Do you speak Hebrew?

Hello Brad, welcome to the calligraphy world! You should check out Eunice Kim-Port, who runs a calligraphy business in your neck of the woods. https://www.instagram.com/surceecalligraphy/

Eunice and I (I'm in Washington, DC) are both members of the Washington Calligraphers Guild. Consider joining and/or taking a workshop. Workshops cover a wide range of styles and levels. Also, the guild is open to suggestions for class offerings. Perhaps you can request a future workshop on Hebrew lettering. (Btw, just saw on the freelancer page, there's a Hebrew letter and arts specialist. Worth checking out her website: https://www.pattyleve.com/).

Hi @Brad
Welcome! You may want to check out this thread: https://theflourishforum.com/forum/index.php?topic=2924

And this: Lesson to Learn the Hebrew Alphabet in an Hour

Drawing and calligraphy go hand in hand - the more you practice either benefits both!  ;D
