Calligraphy Online Classes learning outcome:
Calligraphy is a decorative and artful manner of writing. Sometimes, it can prove rather difficult even with the best tools. This is where brush pens are absolutely great. Because of the tapered, flexible tips, brush pens make an ideal tool for unconventional calligraphy. You can make a perfect down-stroke by exerting a bit of pressure on the tip, and easing up the pressure will yield a beautiful up-stroke.
Brush pens make drawing strokes with various widths much easier and with a little practice, you can easily master calligraphy.
The first module of the programme is for 3 months – once a week.

Calligraphy (from Greek: καλλιγραφία) is a visual art related to writing. It is the design and execution of lettering with a broad-tipped instrument, brush, or other writing instrument.:17 A contemporary calligraphic practice can be defined as “the art of giving form to signs in an expressive, harmonious, and skillful manner”.:18
Modern calligraphy ranges from functional inscriptions and designs to fine-art pieces where the letters may or may not be readable.[page needed] Classical calligraphy differs from typography and non-classical hand-lettering, though a calligrapher may practice both.
Calligraphy continues to flourish in the forms of wedding invitations and event invitations, font design and typography, original hand-lettered logo design, religious art, announcements, graphic design and commissioned calligraphic art, cut stone inscriptions, and memorial documents. It is also used for props and moving images for film and television, and also for testimonials, birth and death certificates, maps, and other written works.
