Calligraphy at the Wilson Museum

Castine -

CASTINE РJoin staff member Joan Bothwell for a calligraphy project at the Wilson Museum from 1-4pm  on Tuesday, August 10th.  The activity will include a brief history and demonstration of the art form, a display of different calligraphic tools and samples, and an opportunity for participants to try their hand at lettering.

Calligraphy is an art form that is centuries old, and it can be traced back to the Phoenician, Greek, and Etruscan alphabets. Modern calligraphy ranges from functional hand-lettered inscriptions, like poems and letters, to pieces of fine art that are displayed in galleries and museums.

The Wilson Museum is located at 120 Perkins Street in Castine. The afternoon activity is free and open to the public. For more information, contact 326-9247 or info@wilsonmuseum.org.
