How to become a calligrapher!

Several times a week I get requests for my level 1 beginner calligraphy workshop here in Virginia. I love the fact that people are so interested in learning how to create beautiful letterforms. It truly is a lost art and has become popular in the wedding and event industry.

If you are interested in becoming a part time or full time calligraphy artist, then there are a few things you must do. First, take my beginners level 1 course! I provide you with ALL of the materials and information to get you started learning calligraphy. I only teach with the materials that I actually use in my daily work. I take the guess work out of learning how to write in copperplate calligraphy. I also provide you with monthly updates and free downloadables to keep you moving in the right direction. You don't have to have beautiful handwriting to learn calligraphy! Remember, it is a skill you are learning.

Secondly, you must PRACTICE! I know, easier said then done, but it's true. Like anything you do in life, you must keep working on the skill and building on it each day to become successful. I suggest practicing every day for 2 weeks at 1 hour at a time. Keep all of you practice sheets and then check back each week to see how far you have come with your writing. It's amazing! 

Last but not least... I offer a level 2 calligraphy workshop at least 2 times a year. It is important that you continue educating yourself, especially if you want to become a part time or full time calligrapher. The workshop appears at first as expensive, but ask anyone who has taken the class. You will find that it is worth the investment! Actually, the class is worth twice as much, given the amount of information you will receive. So what have you got to lose? Bring a friend and join the calligraphy movement!
