Project Description

Share your calligraphy practice!

As you work through the 10 days of exercises, share your progress in the Project Gallery. Upload any writing you’d like from your calligraphy practice, whether it’s your daily sentence, strokes from day one, or an alphabet collage from day eight. Things to consider:

  • Did you notice any changes in your writing over the 10-day period?
  • What do you like about your writing? What are you hoping to improve?
  • Which exercise did you find the most helpful?
  • Are you planning on using any combination of the exercises for a daily warm-up going forward?
