I love to do traditional style calligraphy, but modern calligraphy is even more fun. It can be a lot looser that traditional calligraphy.

Following is a short video that quickly describes the class:
Calligraphy can be used as a design element to create an image or it can be added to enhance an image. Either way, there is something very satisfying about calligraphy. My penmanship is awful, but I love my calligraphy. Here is a caveat. Practice is key to learning calligraphy. I am saying that practice makes or breaks a person’s ability to do calligraphy. There is nothing hard or impossible to do; practice makes it easy.
I teach one basic style and from that you will be able to expand your base. Using modern calligraphy is a very creative experience. Bouncing letters, adding flourishing, and writing with a base color, gradients or patterns is easily accomplished. The following images uses flourish, bouncing, and various colors, gradients and patterns.
I provide a custom Corel Painter variant called modern calligraphy pen – 18 that is compatible with Painters 2018, 2019, 2020, and 2021. Along with the pen, I provide practice sheets and two images with guide lines suitable for starting a project. The class consists of 26 videos, which can be downloaded to your computer.
