Handwriting with Sandy Purvis
Monday, November 12, 6pm FREE
Handwriting expert Sandy Purvis is joining us at Temple Contemporary to host a conversation, workshop, and demonstration on the history of writing by hand. Purvis, co-founder of Hand-RIGHTing Ink, will remind us to dot our i’s and cross our t’s during a hands-on penmanship lesson.
Sandy will begin the evening by presenting some examples of penmanship dating back 4,000 years, and 19th century repetitive handwriting exercises. The event will culminate with Purvis providing individual instruction to each registered guest as we are taught the art of good penmanship.
Sandy Purvis received her Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and completed nine months of fieldwork experience in physical disabilities, psychiatry, and pediatrics. In addition, she conducts summer camps and private lessons for children and adults who need remedial help with handwriting.
