About This Class

This is an intermediate class on modern script calligraphy. Which is also the second class in this short series. You will learn more about the tools and how to use each of them. If you have just started with nib and ink, or you have gained some control, this class deepens your understanding.

We will see how you can practice different words and ligatures to develop different styles of calligraphy. These styles can be used to create different moods and eventually will lead you to develop your own calligraphic style.

As this is the second class in this series, I will teach you how to do beautiful flourishing as you might have gained some control. We will also digitize our calligraphic work in Adobe Illustrator.
