Literary Arts Instructor
Christine Colasurdo’s hands have been stained with ink since she first began studying calligraphy at age 12 (she accidentally tattooed herself with a dip pen when she was a teenager). She has worked as a commercial calligrapher and graphic designer and has taught calligraphy for many years. Her work has been featured in Letter Arts Review and Calligrapher’s Engagement Calendar as well as in members’ exhibitions of the Portland Society for Calligraphy and the Friends of Calligraphy.
Christine is also a poet, author, and journalist, and writes about calligraphic topics in Alphabet and Letter Arts Review. She teaches in both the visual arts and literary arts programs at MAC.
