The Covid-19 pandemic has unfolded in a way that none of us could have imagined.
Plans for Legacies III have changed to a Virtual format.

The Faculty submission deadline for workshops and Break-Out Mini classes, Tune-up classes, demonstrations and lectures is DECEMBER 31, 2020.

Discover, learn and create at Legacies, the 39th International Lettering Arts Conference! Traditionally, Legacies has been a week-long, residential gathering dedicated to the study of calligraphy and lettering arts, offering a variety of sessions for beginning, intermediate and advanced ability levels. Participants may choose from 2.5 or 5-day workshops, Break-Out Mini classes and 6 hour Tune-up classes.

However, the pandemic has steered our planning to accommodate our community as virtual online event. This means the duration of the conference will be shorter. Offering in-person classes is still a possibility at this time.
