Western Calligraphy is a form of therapeutic, visual art related to writing, and has its roots in Latin writing system in 3000 BC. Romans typically wrote using quill pens or reed. Present day writing tools include brushes, nib pens, water-based ink or watercolour on paper.
One can incorporate different writing styles into crafting a beautiful card, or even frame a hand lettered quote as a gift. The beauty of western calligraphy lies with how much concentration and patience is required. Students will have to embrace that western calligraphy cannot be rushed but has to be conscientiously written letter by letter. Brush Calligraphy is a therapeutic skill that is easy to learn with enough practice, and is good for training both children and adults to immerse themselves in the lettering process.
Brush Calligraphy will be taught using a Pentel Aquash Brush. Students will learn how to use watercolour to create hand lettered art work. This course will help students to slow down the pace of life and practice mindful living. Students can look forward to being more focused on doing other tasks during the day after mastering mindfulness in writing.
As western calligraphy requires frequent practice, lessons will start with drills focused on practicing basic strokes to help to get used to the motion and strengths when writing.Read Less
