Calligraphy

Alright so yesterday, me and my mom, brother, sister, and other brother, went to this awesome calligraphy class, where we learned about calligraphy and how to do calligraphy. Here is the bell tower that we saw when we first walked up...



And here is the "Great Hall," which was in the building in which we stayed in to learn about calligraphy...




Here are the wonderful name-tags that our vivacious guide made us...

(Abby's:)




(Mine:)



(Josh's:)



(Peter's:)


Here is the 150-year old building:



And then some BEAUTIFUL stained glass windows inside the bell tower building:





And a baptisim place:



And then we went into this place in which we looked at thirteen Bibles, handwritten in caligriphical writing, and decorated in mediavilish ways with paintings and drop caps and stuff. Unfortunately, I could not take pictures of the Bibles (:l)...but here are some other pictures of cool stuff.

A gorgeous vase I liked very much...


The gift shop...



(Random Picture...this was my birthday cake. *laughs* isn't it awesome. It was a garden.)


And back to the Calligraphy...here are some beautiful paintings/calligraphy stuff...










I like the last one a lot :D
Then our guide put on this SPECTACULAR 45 minute play about the history of reading-writing for us (the group of about twelve people/kids) in which he constantly switched hats so here are a few pictures of his hats....





Hahaha love this picture of him in his "Purple People" hat :D...


I also really like the Pharoah cap...






For some reason I like this close up of him...he looks so concentrated and serious....










And here are some awesome calligraphy things done by people...



A beautiful stained glass window...


More paintings...


The bag he made, and my initial painted and gold-ized...


Another painting...
