Getting Started at DPC

Welcome to Dancing Pen Calligraphy. Here’s what to look for on this site.

The Blog – it’s located on the home page of the website. The posts are now being sent as the more or less regular newsletter via e-mail. If you would like to get that delivered to you, just sign up to “Become a DPC Member” on the sidebar.

For now, when you sign up, you’ll get some bonuses plus the e-mails, but I have some great stuff I’m working on for my members, so if you enjoy calligraphy, you won’t want to miss out on that!

There is a Search bar at the top of the right sidebar. Use that to look for things of interest to you. If you don’t find what you want, please feel free to use the “ASK!” form in the sidebar. Actually, you can use “ASK!” for pretty much any questions you have about calligraphy or this website.

There are a number of links in the menu bar at the top of the page. These give you the main categories represented on this website. On these pages you will find active links in blue – they will take you to pages or posts with that information. The other items listed are on my someday to-do list. (Here’s a hint – if you find an item you are interested in and it isn’t an active link – use the ASK! form to request it. You just might get it sooner that way!)

My original and ongoing goal was to make Dancing Pen Calligraphy the best calligraphy resource site online. So I am starting with some of my own courses which will be turned into online courses available through the Membership part of this website. My goal though is to find you the best of other calligraphy instructors as well – so keep your eyes open!

There’s much more coming, but that’s it for now. Head on over to the rest of the website and enjoy!

  1. Looking forward to your upcoming projects and courses. This is a great website for Calligraphers. As an Instructor of Italic and Copperplate I will be able to share with my students. Thanks for your hard work.

    1. Thanks for your comments. And thank you for sharing that you will be using this with your students. One of my goals down the road is to prepare a course for teachers. At some point I’ll ask for some feedback on what teachers would most like to learn about how to teach calligraphy well.

  3. Hi Evelyn, The site says “Become a DPC Member” to the right top corner. However, i am not able to click and get the link to become a member. Is there another way of doing that or is there a disconnect on that tab. Please check. I intend to get the weekly tips and other info from you.

    By the way, the site looks great and there is loads of info for user. Great job done on that front. Looking forward to seeing more. Congratulations.

    Wishing you a merry christmas and a happy new year.

    Best Regards

      Guess I should have been more specific – you have to enter your name and e-mail and click “submit” to become a member.
      Thanks for the comment and I wish you a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year too!

  5. Am I missing something? I signed up (became member) but apparently cannot access any of the “basic” or other areas. Only a few access (blue) items. Is there a waiting period? Many of the links (like bonuses) do not work. Please help.

    1. Hi Debra,
      Thank you for letting me know. I am just in the process of changing some things on the website, which may be why these links aren’t working at present. I work a full time job and do this evenings and weekends, and for some reason this stage of things is taking me way longer than I had expected. I apologize for that – it frustrates me. But it will be coming – soon, I hope.
      Thanks,
      Evelyn
