Join Us at our Next Meeting on Thursday, December 13, 2018

We meet September through May on the second Thursday of the month. All monthly meetings are held at the Faith Lutheran Church, 6600 Woodrow Avenue, Austin, Texas. Take the elevator and follow the signs.

 

NEW TIMES!!! We have an Early Bird session from 6:00-6:30, a social time from 6:30-7:00, and the program begins at 7:00 with a short business meeting and the program topic following immediately. Program topic lasts approximately one hour.

 

Join us for holiday cheer at the December guild meeting! Spend time visiting with friends and enjoying calligraphy displays. As a special bonus there will be a member "Garage Sale". See what treasures you can find at the sale and help the guild raise money. Members may request a table for selling gently used items from their studios related to calligraphy or art. If you have any questions or would like to request a table, contact Trish Taylor.

 

Welcome to Capital City Scribes!

CCS celebrates 35 years in 2018!

Capital City Scribes (CCS) 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 beautiful writing, 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 and others began formulating the guild's purpose. The guild was established on January 11, 1983.

 

Thank you for your interest in CCS!
