Pen Dragons Calligraphy Samples


Pen Dragons calligraphy guild originated in 1983. We are a 501(c)(3) non profit organization whose purpose is to promote the study, appreciation and practice of calligraphy as an art form and to foster a wider appreciation of calligraphy in all its historical and present day applications through the free interchange of ideas and techniques.

Pen Dragons is open to all interested people. Meetings are held the last Tuesday of the month* at 7:00 p.m. at the Parchment Community Library. The library is located at 401 South Riverview Drive, Parchment, Michigan. A variety of programs scheduled through the year are aimed to enlighten and inspire all skill levels.

Join in the fun!

*Except July, November and December.
