• TOPIC: SPENCERIAN TWIST a playful script style
During this month, we will learn to see the basic lowercase in Spencerian Twist and how to evolve into a new script style using the Traditional Spencerian System. We will use various tools, starting with simple exercises connected with the Vertical Penmanship, moving onto the variation and creating the illusion of vertical writing into combining the letterform to write long letters.
