The activities and programs of the Houston Calligraphy Guild are planned and implemented by the Board of Directors.
From September through May, the schedule includes a choice of an early bird program at 9:00 a.m. or an alternate choice mentoring program for new and current members. A short Guild business meeting takes place at 10 a.m. followed by a second calligraphy program.
During the months of June, July and August, the Guild’s Summer Study Program focuses on either a single calligraphic script over the three month period or a variety of related skills.
