Have you wanted to learn Brush Calligraphy but didn’t think you could? Maybe it hasn’t clicked for you yet? Whether you want to make cards, decorate your planner, or just have a relaxing hobby for yourself, I break this art form down into digestible parts for you to practice. Having taught thousands of people how to do calligraphy and my background in teaching, I have picked up tricks and tips to help you along the way – while having some fun.
Purchase this brush calligraphy class as a gift to yourself or your friends and family, and pair it with a bundle of Beginner Calligraphy Supplies!
My favorite supplies for beginners include:
- One bigger brush pen:
- One smaller brush pen:
- Marker paper (or other smooth paper) OR tracing paper to put on top of the printed worksheets
More recommendations for a beginner calligraphy supply kit can be found locally at Wet Paint Art (St. Paul, Minnesota) or here.

I review the necessary tools for this course, including a small brush pen, large brush pen, and the printed worksheets (included with purchase). Tracing paper is optional.
Positioning and Grip
Before we even put pen to paper, start breaking your handwriting habits with these important tips about holding the pen.
These are the building blocks of the alphabet! You'll be surprised how much your calligraphy practice flourishes from practicing these basic drills.
After learning the basics, we'll go into letters. This is where you can pace yourself - take your time by pausing and revisiting in smaller chunks, or breeze through if you're reviewing.
Individual letters lead us into doing connected words - there are some tricky ones, though!
