Batch I English Calligraphy Workshop (Level I)

It’s the level which is your first step into the world of calligraphy. Here we initiate you to the basics (the Science of Calligraphy). We introduce you to the calligraphy pen & nibs & how different it is from the normal pens, writing on graph paper, strokes, angle of holding, position of sitting, basic strokes & pattern making & how to thicken, thin the strokes. An alphabet & number is a combination of strokes & shapes. In any script, these strokes need thorough practice. You have to initially practice them on graph paper to help you achieve stability over your hand as well as the new equipment. An angle of 45 degrees has to be maintained to master these strokes. Practicing on graph paper makes it easier for judging the size of the stroke and maintaining uniformity between all letters. We will cover numbers, small & capital letters. The session ends with letter & word spacing & paragraph construction.
