Don has set aside his teaching efforts for a while. Please contact the Triangle Calligraphers' Guild (TCG) to learn of current or planned classes in the Triangle area and state-wide.
He will consider tutoring on a one-to-one basis to address specific calligraphic and lettering subjects. If you are interested in polishing up your skills and/or knowledge in a particular subject (e.g., a certain calligraphic hand, media, substrates, design and layout techniques, etc.), please contact him to discuss a personal arrangement.
