Class taught by Emily Smucker Beidler
Fraktur is a distinctly American folk art dating back to the mid 1700s and was an important part of Pennsylvania German culture. This Fraktur I class includes a presentation on fraktur, with special emphasis on its role in Mennonite culture and demonstration of use of the ink and watercolor. Students will spend time creating their own small fraktur piece. The class will focus on the imagery of fraktur, rather than calligraphy. A starter kit is included in the tuition fee. No previous experience is required.
