Teaching Thursday: Calligraphy

This semester I will be replacing Thursday Thoughts with Teaching Thursdays! The plan is to provide online resources for a different skill every week. This first week is all about calligraphy. I started teaching myself brush calligraphy about a month and a half ago and it is a blast. I started with a Tombow Fudenosuke Hard Tip pen and have since collected a bunch of Tombow Double Ended Brush Markers and Koi Sakura Colouring Brush Pens. I even tried watercolour brush calligraphy, which was challenging but fun. I haven’t graduated to using pen and ink yet, but I have a feeling I will get there in the new future. I mean, who needs money? If you are interested in trying out calligraphy, whether brush or traditional, check out my recommendations below for some great resources.
