Modern Calligraphy Skillshare Course

September 11th, 2013

The Art of Modern Calligraphy

I’m a terrible learning junkie. I love learning new stuff, especially anything that lets me get my hands dirty slinging around ink, paint and writing materials.

I’ve joined a couple classes on Skillshare recently and have been quite impressed so far :) I love being able to learn at my own pace, and the video tutorials are really great for that. Now there’s a Modern Calligraphy class coming up, and as I’m currently looking for something to replace the 52 Lists project (which is on hold…) joining this class was a no-brainer for me!

I’ve had a few people commenting on my calligraphy stuff, so if you’re interested in doing some calligraphy yourself, with a bit of a modern touch, join me? If you enroll via this link you get a 10 $ discount off your first Skillshare class and I get a 10 $ credit to feed my learning addiction with :)

The class starts on September 25th. Looking forward to this!

    Oooh i’ve always wanted to learn calligraphy, but somehow it feels that i won’t make it. Maybe it’s just my silly head, i would love to give it a try someday! It must be so exciting for you!

      It takes quite a lot of practice and attention to detail, to get proficient, but I think as a designer you’re sure to have plenty of the latter :) I’m sure you’d do fine!

      The uncial and carolingian minuscule are good scripts to work on as a beginner. It really helps to visit a class or two to get started, so you learn how to twist and turn the pen to get the desired results. I’m glad I was introduced to this art in my studies and was so thrilled to discover the local adult evening class to carry on working on it!

      I have no idea what this course will be like, but I’m interested in getting into a more modern approach to calligraphy, so far I’ve only worked on very traditional scripts, I’m thrilled to be looking into something new :) Can’t wait for the course!
