Brush Calligraphy

Good day! (Or night, since it’s 11.50 p.m for me heh)

My Church’s youth group has a program called Interest Group(IG) and I’m part of the Design & Publicity IG ๐Ÿ™‚ In yesterdays meeting, the founder ofย JM Creations came to teach us the basics of brush calligraphy. What a privilege!

Although I had a rough idea of the foundations of brush calligraphy (like the whole thin upstroke, thick downstroke rule), it was still fun doing it all together as a group. Also, I’ve never actually been to a calligraphy class so that was nice! We also got to take home a brush pen freebie heh – who wouldn’t like a nice brush pen freebie? :3

We got to do some painting on both hard press & cold press painting paper too ๐Ÿ™‚ I never knew such paper existed up till then!

Anyway, for anyone out there attempting brush calligraphy, I thought this slanted grid below might help you out ๐Ÿ™‚ It may help you get used to the whole 45 degrees way of holding the pen.
