INSPIRATION FOR CALLIGRAPHY PRACTICE

PART OF LEARNING CALLIGRAPHY IS TO PRACTICE, PRACTICE, PRACTICE!  It used to be that you could practice your calligraphy addressing letters, writing out bills/checks, etc.  Now with email, social media and on-line/automatic payments, it can be a bit harder to find a way to practice your new calligraphy skills.  Here’s an idea!  Cut out some favorite photos from magazines and glue them to notebook paper.  Write some words underneath the photo to inspire you to practice your calligraphy.  By the time you fill up a few pages with these inspirational words, it is likely you will be writing almost the entire alphabet.  Another idea might be to glue small magazine pictures to blank cards & write your practice calligraphy words below.  Voila’ you have practiced your calligraphy & have a greeting card to send to a friend!  Write on!
