Do you believe that handwriting is a lost art? With today’s communication, it seems that handwriting is becoming less of a necessity. In our next workshop, on January 21st, HSP is proud to host Dr. Robert J. Mahar for a discussion on the history and present status of handwriting.  How necessary is it that children learn cursive and print?

This program also will allow participants the opportunity to view our displays of old handwriten documents and on the production of oak gall ink. Participants will have the opportunity to try their hand at transcribing old script and writing with quills. This is a unique opportunity for teachers to understand the importance of handwriting in today’s society.

Teachers are also welcomed to contact us if they would like to bring in their own classes for a quill writing experience. For more information, please view our calendar and contact us with any questions.

This program is part of the Pen to Paper program series. Purchase the entire series and the third program is free. All qualify for Act 48 credit.
