Beyond A to Z: The Calligraphic Journey with Sharon Zeugin


My passion for calligraphy began with a speedball textbook in 1968. Unlocking the mystery of the beautiful letters I discovered there became a lifelong quest. Along the way I have studied in London at the Roehampton Institute, taken and taught many classes here and abroad while expanding my art-making to include drawing, painting and book making. Most recently I have added cold wax and oil painting, sketchnote-taking and graphic recording to the mix of my art explorations. Tonight I am happy to share highlights from that journey (focusing particularly on journals and sketchbooks) including a look at my most recent work.  Bring a few pencils, pens and markers because I will be offering some tips on sketch notes and large scale visual note-taking!

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!
