Faculty List for Passionate Pen 2015

At past conferences, there have been full week and half-week classes. At next summer’s conference, there a one-day class followed by a four-day class.

All classes are hands-on. You can choose from 52 one-day classes on Sunday, July 26 and 40 four-day classes that run from Monday, July 27 to Friday, July 31. (Sunday classes are held 8:30 – 4:30 pm with a two hour lunch break. Monday, Wednesday and Thursday classes are held from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm with a two hour lunch break. Tuesday and Friday, classes are held from 8:30 to 11:30 am.)

Note: The start times for the classes are Pacific time. For East Coaters, that 8:30 am class start will feel more like 11:30 am, especially early in the week.  These extraordinary artists will present a wide variety of one-day and four-day classes for a full range of calligraphic skill levels.
