Ampersand Symbol Calligraphy Practice Sheets. The ampersand is my favorite character, so I had to turn it into a free brush calligraphy practice sheet set!
Ampersand Symbol Calligraphy Practice Sheets
My love for ampersands runs deep.
People always ask why I love ampersands so much that I have one tattooed on my inner left wrist, so here goes:
1️⃣ I’ve always loved letters and words. I was an English major in college and took a ton of poetry classes (both studying poets and writing my own). I think the ampersand is just the most lovely character!
2️⃣ In literature, something always follows the ampersand. It means there is more to the story. So when I’m going through a hard time in life, I can look at my tattoo and remember that this hard moment is not how the story ends. It’s a symbol of hope.
3️⃣ This is along the same lines as reason number two. For me, the ampersand is a symbol of my faith. “And if not, He is still good.” -Daniel 3:18.
It’s a reminder that when God doesn’t answer my prayers like I expect, to be patient and trust that He sees the bigger picture. As Lysa TerKeurst said, “God loves us too much to answer our prayers at any time other than the right time.” ?

Using the Procreate Practice Sheet
Save the worksheet JPG to your iPad and open Procreate.
- Click the + sign and choose the “screen size” canvas while holding your iPad in Portrait Orientation.
- Click the wrench icon in the top left corner and select “insert a photo.” Select the lettering worksheet JPG from your photos. Adjust the worksheet’s size to fit the canvas.
- From the layers panel, click the + to add a layer for lettering. That way, you aren’t lettering on the same layer as the worksheet.
I recommend using the DND Basic Brush from my first bundle of Procreate Brushes.
Set the brush size to about 4-6% on the slider, as shown in the screenshot above. I used 4% for this particular set of Ampersand worksheets.
