Mini Workshop – September 2019

Students had a great time learning about & writing with the Pilot Parallel pen. All sorts of mark-making, including circular designs, to practice the strokes! The circular designs were so much fun! Maggie showed a great tip about how to keep track of the lid for the pen! Maggie used the Parallel Pen to write her monogram, as well as her name, all connected.
