Christmas Calligraphy

Here's a glimpse of the exciting efforts of our Sixth Graders....
I'm so proud of their persistence and effort!

Planning the composition and centering the design.
Using a calligraphy pen, ink, and the "Old English" font style to write.
Forming letters with incredible concentration while Gregorian Chant music softly plays.  Imagining we are scribes in a scriptorium (room where illuminated manuscripts were written in the Middle Ages).

Preforming the job of Illuminators: adding the gold.

Peace on earth, goodwill to all.
