Basic Strokes Worksheets for Small Brush Pens
Whether you’re a newbie or experienced with brush calligraphy, it’s always a good time to practice basic strokes. It’s a great warmup exercise if you haven’t lettered in a while or got a new type of brush pen.
If you’re a newbie, small brush pens are the perfect way to start brush calligraphy! They’re much easier to work with the larger brush pens.
The new sets of Basic Strokes Worksheets include an expanded set of basic calligraphic strokes. These strokes are simply pieces of all the letters of the alphabet.
These worksheets were designed for use with small brush pens. These are the supplies I recommend using.
- Small Brush Pen. My favorites are the Tombow Fudensuke Pens and the Pentel Touch Fude Flexible Tip Markers (because they come in colors!)
- HP Premium Choice LaserJet paper for printing the worksheets. It’s gentle on your brush pens.

Doing the Worksheets
- Don’t focus on making your strokes perfectly match mine. Focus more on the thin upstrokes and thick downstrokes part!
- Go slow. Like super slow. Speed comes with practice and time but I find my work is most consistent when I keep it slow.
Brush Calligraphy Basics
On the upstrokes, you use light pressure and on the down strokes, you use heavier pressure. I’ll demonstrate this in a video later in the post.
