We're having an exhibition at the Pepper Street Gallery beginning on June 25th! See below for details.
PORT ADELAIDE ENFIELD COUNCIL GRANT
In January 2021 The Calligraphy Society of South Australia received a COVID 19 Response Grant to enable the purchase of a Document Camera and Data Projector. These items have made it possible for the Society to meet face to face for the Annual General Meeting in February and for subsequent monthly meetings and workshops. Social distancing is ensured through tutors teaching via the camera, computer, and projection onto a wall screen. A booking system for meetings has been introduced and is successfully supporting COVID appropriate attendance at workshops. Remote members can join us via Zoom.
The Calligraphy Society thanks the Port Adelaide Enfield Council for their generous support.
And now a word from our sponsors...
Port Adelaide Enfield Council kindly sponsored the Calligraphy Society of South Australia with a COVID Safe Response Grant. As you are all aware we received $2000 towards our new technology of Document Camera and Data Projector to enable us to meet this year.
We meet within the Council District of Port Adelaide Enfield and quite a number of you live in this area.
But did you know a lot happens in this council area? Visit the Port Adelaide Enfield website to find out more,, – or just go exploring.
There are an amazing number of events that happen in Port Adelaide Enfield as well. Lots for history buffs and classes on various subjects, including the arts. Visitto find out more.
And then there’s the SA Maritime Museum, National Railway Museum, SA Aviation Museum and the Port Adelaide Historical Museum.
Just in case you don’t have enough art gear there is also an Art Shop with a range of things that you might not find elsewhere.
The sign on the Masonic Building in Port Adelaide shows someone has a sense of lettering!
The next meeting for the Calligraphy Society of South Australia is on Sunday 23rd May at 1.15pm.
This afternoon workshop will allow you to continue discovering the varied and interesting effects achieved with graphite and coloured pencils – both watercolour pencils and normal.
We have looked at shading using several graphite grades and know how their use changes the look of a letter.
You were introduced to a simple letter design with waisting, extension and exaggeration of letter shape and repetition.
If you attended our March or April meetings, please bring all your work. If not, then you will be able to ‘catch-up’. This workshop is suitable for everyone. Those with previous experience using pencils will leap ahead with their designs and may even finish one on ‘good’ paper. Only use graphite or colour pencils. Please see information sheets below.
