Mission Statement

The St. Louis Calligraphy Guild is a non-profit (501)(c)(3) corporation, formed to promote cooperation and communication amoung calligraphers, calligraphy teachers, calligraphy students and other involved in lettering and book arts. The Guild is dedicated to the advancement and improvement of Calligraphy and related arts, to the expansion of opportunities for education of children and adults in Italic handwriting and other letterforms, and the appreciation and application of written forms.

The Guild is organized exclusively for charitable and educational purposes, including promotion of the study and practice of Calligraphy as a craft and art form, to encourage excellence, to foster appreciation of its history and application, and to sponsor activities, including conduction of seminars and workshops.

Educational opportunities include workshops, lectures and mettings that offer demonstrations and hands-on activities. Our workshops are routinely taught by renowed calligraphers covering various alphabets, techniques and decorative elements. In addition, our members often take advantage of workshops offered by neighboring guilds. Sharing our work can be a growth experience for all at our Annual Members Exhibit. All members are encouraged to display their work.
