    Learning the Basics of the Calligraphy Alphabet

    You’ve made it! Now that you learned the basics of calligraphy, it’s time to learn the calligraphy alphabet, one letter at a time. Of course, there are so many different calligraphy fonts to choose from, but classic calligraphy is a great place to start.

    Let’s jump right in!

    Click here to download the lowercase calligraphy alphabet our instructor, Madi has graciously prepared for us. Place your tracing paper over the letter you’re working with before you proceed to tracing on your practice grid.

    When learning the calligraphy alphabet, it’s best to start with the basics. That’s why we’re going to start with lowercase ascenders {b,d,f, h, k, l, t}. They are very similar to the practice you have already completed.

    As they say, practice makes perfect! You can choose the depth of your practice, but I recommend a page for each letter minimum. You can work on a few letters a day and circle back around to repeat them.

    Now onto lowercase descenders {g, j, p, q, y}.
