Calligraphy Instructor

Hands down, Randy Hasson is one of my favorite teachers. His lessons are jam-packed with the technical how-tos, tips and tricks -- equipping students with the confidence to transition from one lesson to the next. Randy's deep knowledge and love for letters is evident in his lectures and captivating stories. The level of care and detail that he puts into his courses -- from handouts, to lectures, to study group sessions -- is further proof of his hard work and dedication to the success of his students.

Why choose Courses from the Hasson Studio?

A superior quality, informative presentation is the highest priority in Randall’s Course offerings.
He has a focus on the WHY of his subject matter. Each course has detailed introductions with history and background, information on materials, and skill session videos geared towards your learning style. Short videos allow a more focused concentration, while longer presentations can give a greater overview for those who learn better that way.

Features of these Online Courses

We also recommend adding Randall's Live Sessions and Session Replays for a full year (10 sessions)
These sessions include presentations, projects, questions and answers, and the ability to interact with fellow students. Live Session Replays are posted so new students can catch the ones they missed, and a private Facebook Group allows you to comment, share your work, and get inspired. 

"As an educator, I know how important it is to hold the attention of the viewer. These videos contain so many aspects of art that I feel are important: a little history and background, colorful examples, as well as step-by-step instructions on exactly how to begin and master each hand/font. The videos are accommodating: I can stop whenever necessary and pick right back up where I left off. Being able to see Randy speaking and demonstrating the craft at the same time makes it feel more like an actual workshop. These videos are interesting and entertaining, and I highly recommend them to calligraphers and artists at any skill level."
