The art of calligraphy and hand lettering is on the rise, but did you know that it's a helpful way to deal with issues relating to mental health? Join us as we not only learn the basic techniques of brush calligraphy and hand lettering, but also how this art form can help with symptoms of anxiety, depression, stress, etc. Students will not only learn the basics, but leave with a fun new hobby, materials, practice workbook, and small project created by you!

You'll get a full workbook made by me with practice sheets, a number of brush pens/markers to take home and continue your practice, a small project to take home and a fun new hobby for those stressful moments in your life! We can't wait to see you! This is created for beginners, but all levels welcome! And if you're a lefty, SO AM I! So you've got an ally!

Please let me know if you have any questions! Can't wait to see you there!

Heather Kopf is the woman behind the small business, "Hey, Hey Heather K"--which began in 2012--and passion project, "Calligraphy for Mental Health". She has a Master in Public Health degree from Purdue University Global and Bachelors in Psychology from University of Maryland, Baltimore County. For as long as she can remember, Heather has been dabbling in a variety of art forms including painting, crocheting, illustration, graphic design, and needlepoint. Starting in 2016, Heather began focusing more on the art of calligraphy and hand lettering, noting the meditative and therapeutic qualities of this creative form. She created the online social media account of "Calligraphy for Mental Health" to share stories of her and others in December of 2018\. Heather has been educating service members, veterans and families about traumatic brain injury since 2011 and brings the same passion to her art instruction with a mental health advocacy twist. In 2017 she began teaching "The Basics of Brush Calligraphy" through private instruction and classes at the Bethesda USO. She's excited to build this class up and bring it to Give Rise Studio!

Heather sells her art at the Mount Airy Commons in Mount Airy, Maryland. She has been instructed on calligraphy and hand lettering by Sharisse DeLeon of "Pieces Calligraphy", Amanda Arneill, Molly Jacques and Lauren Hom of "Hom Sweet Hom". She resides in Germantown with her two furry art thiefs, Otis and Rory.
