What do calligraphy tutoring services include?

Calligraphy classes involve teaching you the basics of calligraphy writing, developing your skills, and taking you to more advanced lessons such as brush lettering. It can also include learning the history of calligraphy and how it applies to our modern world. When you can’t find someone to write beautifully-designed letters, having calligraphy skills can surely come in handy. Here are a few things you can learn when you book calligraphy lessons near you:

Calligraphy tools and supplies

The first thing you need to learn when starting your calligraphy journey is how to use the right tools and materials. You can use different supplies depending on your skill level, from brush pens and classic pointed pens to pencils and markers. Each one requires a specific technique that you need to practise for you to be able to achieve those beautiful and elegant calligraphy letters. Calligraphy courses can also help you learn the ink, nib, and paper combinations that play well together. 

Calligraphy fundamentals

Understanding the basics of calligraphy is a must for you to develop your calligraphy skills further. This involves knowing the technicals, like the anatomy of letters, family styles, variations, and rules to follow. You also need to learn about historical calligraphy alphabets to better understand how they have evolved through time. Then, your calligraphy teacher can help you practise the strokes until they’re consistent, before jumping into writing letters and words. 

 

Level up your skills by practising calligraphy on foreign writing systems, like East Asian, Arabic, or Indic. You can even get a professional translator to help you understand the meanings behind foreign words!

Developing your calligraphy style

Once you’ve mastered the basics of calligraphy, you’re ready to develop your calligraphy style. Modern calligraphy workshops let you find your style using innovative materials and daring layouts and seeking inspiration from anything that sparks your creativity. You can have your take on flourishes and alphabets, making each stroke your own. Though considered a form of self-expression, calligraphy still requires the letters to be legible and not be lost in embellishments. With their skills and experience, your Tasker can help you find the right balance.

Apply your newly-acquired calligraphy skills by designing bespoke pieces! You can get an illustrator to make additional graphics and designs for you or even hire a private coach to guide you if you’re planning to pursue calligraphy as your full-time career.
