Cursive writing may be labeled as a "dying art," due to children becoming more adept at typing through modern technology. In fact, fewer school districts have stopped teaching cursive altogether.
Hong Nguyen, who teaches at Ann Arbor's Honey Creek Community School, still believes cursive writing has artistic value. She was certified by master penman Michael Sull. She'll be teaching a seminar at the upcoming Detroit Pen Show on October 20. For more information on the seminar, click here.
Speaking of master penmakers, Dale Penkala is among them. He brought several of his masterfully-made pens, a few of which are seen on the attached photo above. You can also check out the many other pens he has crafted at the Opus Menchan website.
