About This Class

d0fffad7

Calligraphy for beginners is a three class sequence for anyone who wants to start studying calligraphy. This is the final part of that sequence.

This class is about writing Brush Letters. Brush letters are a more freehand style than Italics or Foundational Hand, and there is a lot more freedom and wiggle room when writing in this style compared to the others. Because of this, and to make the learning process easier and more consistent, we'll use the same skeleton from the last class, the Italic letters.

So, what are you waiting for? Your calligraphy isn’t getting any better just reading this text! Join me to finish honing your basic calligraphy skills so we can move on to really interesting stuff. ;)
