Reggie Ezell’s 2020 St John’s Bible Class Series

If you are interested in reserving a spot in this class, please send a non-refundable $100 check payable to Lisa Tsang (email for mailing address). The dates being arranged at Artworks are: March 21-22; April 18-19; May 9-10 (note: Mothers Day weekend, you can treat yourself post-LOJ by spending the weekend with Reggie!); June 13-14 (remember to check on a 2020 calendar).

If you’ve taken a Reggie class, you are familiar with the long days. And there will be homework. But it is one of the most rewarding experiences you can do to advance your knowledge as a calligrapher.

Saturday hours 9:30AM-6PM, with a break for lunch and a potluck dinner gathering (optional but adds to the learning fun), and Sunday hours 9:30-6PM. Reggie wants people to be able to take his class so please consider an installment payment plan that will fit your budget ($50/month or $100/month, lump sum payments are also accepted) and possibly an extended payment program after the start of the class. That being said, each weekend class will cost about $185, for a total tuition of $740 which includes the class supply fees and handouts.

Before the class, please purchase a copy of Illuminating the Word, by Chris Calderhead, 2nd edition and watch the DVD The Illuminator. Registration will be on a first come basis, and after the maximum 15 students is reached, a waiting list will be maintained but those on the wait list will not be asked to submit a $100 deposit until space becomes available.
