30 Days to Better Brush Calligraphy
Practice Makes Progress! If you commit to practicing daily for 30 days with these worksheet sets, you’ll make great strides in your brush calligraphy skills.
Keep your pages so you can compare Day 1 to Day 30!
I also like to do these worksheets whenever I get a new set of markers since they’re all slightly different to work with.
First, up let’s cover the basics in a few videos.
Brush Calligraphy Basics Videos
Learn about the supplies you’ll need for Brush Calligraphy in this intro video.
A video lesson on the basic strokes.
As I mentioned in the first video, using the proper paper keeps your brush tips in great condition so look for ultra-smooth paper designed for use with brush pens and markers.
My favorite papers and pads are listed below.
- Rhodia Dot Pad
- Canson Marker Paper
- Copic X-Press It Paper
- Watercolor Paper: Hot Press is smoother than Cold Press so opt for the hot press!
- Copy Paper: HP Premium Choice Laserjet Paper
Holding the Brush Pen
You can really hold your pen however it is comfortable for you, but one thing you need to do is hold it at a roughly 45-degree angle, as demonstrated in the video lesson.
Brush Calligraphy: Alphabet Video Lessons
You can either just use brush pens and paper or grab the worksheets below to follow along with the video lessons.
To watch the ABC videos, head over to my Brush Calligraphy Basics playlist on YouTube.
The remainder of the alphabet lessons will all be on YouTube by the end of June 2019 (at the very latest).
