Painting the Illuminated Letter Movie night Rosemary Buzcek video
It’s MOVIE Night!
Join us for our
monthly meeting program on Thursday, March 13, when we’ll grab the popcorn, cut
the lights, and kick back to watch Rosemary Buczek’s luscious DVD: Gilding and Painting the Illuminated Letter.
Rosemary creates a complete illuminated letter, step-by-step, from start to
finish, introducing us to the optimal media, tools, and techniques used in this
exciting calligraphic art form. Rosemary has been awarded "Master
Penman" by The International Association of Master Penmen, Engrossers and
Teachers of Handwriting" (IAMPETH), one of the oldest lettering arts
associations in America. Her work is prized around the world, hanging in the
White House, the Vatican, and numerous private collections.
Examples of Rosemary Buczek's work. Check out her work at this link.

Calligraphy Guild, Capital
City Scribes, is a non-profit organization dedicated to sharing in the
appreciation of, and providing education in the art of calligraphy.
Fostering both community and personal growth through the art of
CCS is open
to all who believe in its purpose.
Capital City Scribes started out as a search for a bottle of ink.
Thelma Matthews carried ink at the University of Texas CO-Op East Book
Store and in October of 1982, Thelma invited all the calligraphers she
knew to attend an informal gathering at the bookstore. It was at that
meeting and three follow-up meetings that Paula Webb, Thelma, Jeff
Jeffreys, Nicholas Yeager & others began formulating the
purpose. The guild was established on January 11, 1983, with
twenty-nine in attendance, at the Hancock Recreation Center.
Calligraphers acquainted themselves with each other, then elected a
president and five other Executive Board members. Anne Boykin's design,
which combined a quill and a bottle shaped as the capitol dome, was
selected as the guild's logo. By the end of the first year, when
officers were elected for the next year, the guild had become a
well-established group of letter-lovers. For a more detailed history
email us and we will furnish you with more information. Thank you for
