My main purpose when I started this class was to detach from all the daily stress and just do something for my own pleasure in a nice ambiance, with people who enjoyed being there as much as I did. I absolutely loved the class!!!! It was highly informative. Amalia is patient, helpful, knowledgeable and organized. It was a real pleasure having her as a teacher and she made this experience truly enjoyable. Now I just got the taste of it and I am practicing as much as my schedule allows it.

I've rediscovered my passion for calligraphy. I really enjoyed my Monday evening calligraphy course learning Copperplate Essentials. Amalia is very friendly and patient. She is taking the time to show you over and over again until you master all the letters. All the group of participants was amazing and I can't wait our next meeting! Thank you, Amalia!

The copperplate essentials beginners class was a very good experience. I found it most informative about supplies needed and how to get started . Amalia is a very good teacher watched over us individually giving us advice and praise. I have found caligraphy to be very therapeutic and have continued to practice what I learned in my class. I recommended this to anyone with an interest to learn.
