The Art of Calligraphy Writing

by Admin on February 7, 2013

Hi folks!

I’ve created this web site to help men and women willing to develop or improve their calligraphy writing skills. Calligraphy – from the Greek word for “beautiful writing” – is lovely to look at and a joy to create. Even in today’s world beautifully written words have a special place. It has a vast number of uses. You can use calligraphy for award-making and scrapbooking, invitations, signs, posters, charts, plaques, labels, thank-you notes and greeting cards, to name a few. Anything that you can think of where elegantly penned letter will add quality. As result, calligraphy can be a wonderful way for you to discover your new talents and abilities.

Calligraphy writing is an art form

Saying that calligraphy is just a beautiful writing does not give you the complete picture. Calligraphy actually is an art form, but it’s not difficult at all, it just requires you to change your thinking a bit. You can learn calligraphy skills given enough practice, patience and eagerness to slow down from life in the fast lane. There are plenty of calligraphy alphabet types readily available. With time and practice, you will be able to derive your own unique alphabet variations.

There is one thing that makes calligraphy very different from common handwriting you probably were doing back in elementary school. The thing is that it forces you to slow down. It requires a slower pace that you take time to look at small details. Calligraphy is about taking common handwriting and bringing it to a higher level of appreciation. Calligraphy can be very therapeutic.

Calligraphy is not that hard

Getting started with calligraphy is easy if you have the right materials at hand and an easy plan to follow. Once you have them ready, you will be astonished seeing how rapidly you will progress. You do not need talent, costly supplies or most of the other things that are needed for many other kinds of art. Calligraphy is a skill that anyone who can write can learn.

If you have ever thought that:

  • You lack the talent and ability to do calligraphy,
  • You are too old or too young to learn calligraphy,
  • You can’t afford the equipment to do calligraphy,
  • You don’t have enough space to do calligraphy.

Forget these. The only things you need are:

  • Patience,
  • Control and precision,
  • Practice.

With these, anyone can become a good calligrapher. Calligraphy writing is something where you can begin to see real accomplishment in a very short time. The more you learn about calligraphy, the more rewarding it can become.

If you’ve ever wanted to learn how to do calligraphy, but weren’t sure how to begin, this blog is for you. Over the next few weeks I will go through some essential calligraphy writing skills, so stay tuned.
