Cream City Calligraphers and Paper Arts meets at Whitefish Bay High School at 1200 Fairmount Avenue, Whitefish Bay, WI. Evening meetings are held in September, October, November, February, March, April, and May at 7pm. A special John Hancock Dinner is held in January. Guests are always welcome!
The meeting place is either in the cafeteria (enter at the Door #3 entrance off of Marlborough Drive) or a room accessed off of Ardmore Avenue.
Details regarding the meeting place will be listed in Calligraffiti, our membership newsletter and on our calendar (found on our Events & Activities page).
We welcome new members of any skill level. Our meetings feature speakers or hands-on projects related to calligraphy and paper arts. Our purpose is to share ideas and techniques and to bring well-known calligraphers to the Milwaukee area.
Join us for our next meeting:
Thursday, October 24 at 7pm
Join us for a fun night of demos and learn what is new for calligraphers and paper artists!
Please join Marianne Kanieski in welcoming three very creative vendors to our October 24th meeting! A lot of members have shown interest in learning about what’s new on the market, and what do you do with it. We have invited Wendy Kannenberg from Stampin’ Up, Lindsey from Dick Blick, and Holly Nintzel from Michaels Arts and Crafts, to talk about what they have to offer calligraphers and artists at their places of business. There will be demonstrations, so you do not want to miss this meeting. Wendy will be demoing stamping techniques, Holly will be showing us how to use a Cricket cutting machine to enhance our calligraphy and cards, and Lindsey from Dick Blick will have some creative things to show us as well.
Supplies to bring: If you have any pieces or items you are working on, please bring them along to show at the sharing table. Please also bring as many Honor Cards with you as this is an ongoing project for our group. They have doubled the number of flights, so more cards are needed! Also remember Kathy’s House in your card making activities. Please bring an open mind and find out how these vendors can help make us even more creative!
Also, bring your completed 5” x 5” illuminated letter square we worked on last month to share. Please write your name on the back of your squares, so we can make sure you get them back. We will be collecting them for a CCC & PA collaboration for Kathy’s House. We can’t wait to see all the variations!
