Want to get started on learning brush pen calligraphy?

Perhaps you have been copying calligraphy styles you see on social media but they somehow don't look "right"? It could just be that you are still carrying one key misconception that needs to be debunked right now. That alone has prevented you from progressing, no matter how much you practice and re-watch clips on calligraphy. This course will begin with that to start you off on the right foot!

The course will also put you on a firm foundation for starting your calligraphy journey by emphasizing the basic strokes, then building up on that to form letters. Instead of learning letters in sequence, this course will also cover a much more effective way to letter the 26 alphabets.

Then, infuse your own style by finding ways to link letters together (this course covers FOUR ways). We wrap up the course by applying all the newly acquired skills through a DIY project.

This is THE course to start with, and you will be well on your way to create those beautiful calligraphy you see in journals, letters, cards and so on.

  • Bust one misconception that hamper those starting on their brush pen calligraphy journey
