NEW! The Guild is offering access to monthly members meetings through Zoom and/or at Neilson Park Creative Centre. Registration is required for in-studio attendance. Meeting Dates, Topics and Details for 2020/21 are provided below.
CAGT meets at Neilson Park Creative Centre (NPCC) in Studio A 2 on the second Thursday of the month at 6:30 p.m. or Sunday afternoons at 1:00 p.m., as scheduled. Guests are welcome to attend one general meeting to learn about the Guild. For more information, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
New! September to June—members can attend monthly meetings in the studio and to access our library and/or participate on-line in the Zoom format for planned presentations. In 2021 there will also be a combination of in-studio and/or guest presenters on-line via Zoom. Invitations and passwords will be emailed prior to the monthly meeting.
ZOOM! To join our on-line meetings, download Zoom (www.zoom.us) on to your computer or mobile device.
You can also join using your landline or mobile phone without video—similar to a conference call. In that case, you do not have to download Zoom. Dial 647-558-0588, then enter the Meeting ID, then password.
Tips for participating via Zoom
We’re looking for ideas and for people who might like to either lead or share or co-host on-line or in the studio. Contact Ramona Matthews.
Both CAGT and NPCC offer additional open studio time. Pay $5 on the day. These are opportunities to work with others, get inspired and receive help from experienced calligraphers.
Bring your kit to meetings or classes so you have your learning tools on hand! Contents can include sketchbook and/or notebook and pencil/lead holder, silent pencil sharpener, ruler, bone folder, scissors, tracing paper, cutting mat and knife, glue stick, markers, pen holder/nibs, ink and tools or materials you prefer. All calligraphers must bring a mask and a table covering to participate in the studio.
