CALLIGRAPHY ... the art of beautiful writing

This course de-mystifies the use of authentic calligraphy instruments.

  • to load the reservoir and get the ink to flow onto your paper ;
  • how to create the thick and thin strokes of the letter ;
  • why it is important to keep your pen at a 45° angle ;
  • where to place your letters in the guidelines ;
  • what the ductus is.

Presented by Mary-Jane Roussel, a qualified calligrapher and designer, this course starts with a keynotes presentation that will first give you a quick overall view of Calligraphy essentials, followed by a series of videos will help you get started in Calligraphy.

In the demonstrations, Mary-Jane uses a 3 mm Brause oblique nib in a wooden pen-holder and walnut hull ink.

After completing this introductory course, you will probably be yearning to learn more about Calligraphy, the Art of Beautiful Writing. You may want to go on to our Simple Gothic Script course, also available on Udemy.

Have you spent a lifetime admiring the grace and elegance of Arabic Calligraphy but never had the chance to learn the art? Have you spent ages looking for a viable resource to teach you the art in the English language but never found one?

This one of a kind Arabic Calligraphy course allows you the flexibility to learn anytime, from anywhere, and at your own pace. This is your chance to begin the journey of a lifetime; start learning today and explore your true artistic capabilities!

Not sure if learning the art online is a good idea? In addition to Udemy's 30 day guarantee, you have my personal promise that this course, along with the perseverance to learn and practice, will have you scripting like a pro in a few months time.

This is an 8-week comprehensive and step-by-step course to learn the Naskh, Thuluth, and Diwani scripts from absolute scratch. Following is the outline for the course:

  • Week1: Introduction – Learning Methodology, Supplies, Dynamics of the pen, Scaling and Measurements

FAQ

  • Is this course suitable for my kids to take? Of course, the earlier a child starts learning calligraphy, the easier it is to pick up the art.
  • When does this course start and end? Is there a fixed schedule? There is no start and end date to the course, and there is no fixed schedule; this course keeps your busy life schedule in mind and allows you the flexibility to attend the lessons whenever you'd like.
  • Are these live sessions or pre-recorded lessons? These are pre-recorded detailed tutorial videos which you can watch as many times as you'd like.
  • Since this is an 8 week course, will we have access to videos for only 8 weeks? 8 weeks is only a suggested timeframe. As you will have the access to the lessons indefinitely, you can complete the course in 8 months or perhaps 8 years; it is totally up to you.
  • Does the course include supplies used to write calligraphy? No, as this is an online course, there are no supplies provided with the course. However, I teach how to create your own bamboo qalam and suggest brands/types of paper and ink you can purchase from any local art store.
  • Will watching the videos be sufficient enough to have me write good calligraphy?Watching the videos alone will get you nowhere; watching the videos along with ample practice and completing the weekly homework will have you standing at your own feet by the end of the course. You will be ready to start creating your own calligraphy artwork inshaAllah.
  • Will the instructor mark or grade my work for corrections? This course is designed as a self study guide. However I will be happy to answer any questions or provide guidance.
  • Would you recommend this course over the book you have published? It's comparing apples and oranges; both resources have their own benefits. The course will allow you to learn live scripting while the book is a great reference guide for all scaling and measurements. The book also include 2 additional scripts that are not taught as part of the online course: Riq'a and Farsi.

Follow the lessons to

  • learn how to insert the nib into your holder ;

  • comprehend how to get the ink to flow from your pen ;

  • understand letter weight and proportion ;

  • befriend those oh-so-necessary guidelines ;

  • master the ductus (that's the "recipe" to follow for learning each letter).

Then, 

  • draw each letter of the alphabet, first the lowercase letters, then the uppercase. The letters are not demonstrated in alphabetical order; they are presented to you in groups of similar letters ;

  • plan and execute a project with a short text.

Using a 3 mm Brause nib (or similar) and ink will give you the most "authentic" experience, but of course you can use calligraphy markers or cartridge pens with a calligraphic nib if you prefer.

Some of the benefits of doing calligraphy are:

  • calligraphy is yoga-for-the-soul. In doing calligraphy, you set aside some time for yourself, and you will feel great for it ;

  • calligraphy contributes to neuroplasticity —which basically means that, while teaching your (old) brain new tricks, you are  creating new pathways in your brain and paving the way to sharper neurological skills;

  • embellishing your daily life with beautiful letters.  . Creating beauty of any sort is a wonderful thing to do !

Several downloadable documents are included (practice sheets, letter reference sheets ...).

Calligraphy is not just a pleasant artistic activity, it is almost a meditative experience!

Grab your pen and paper, and come along on this calligraphic journey!

This is a course for beginner-intermediate calligraphers. No previous experience is required to take it, nor does it require any special artistic talent. What you DO need is the desire to learn and to practise! 

We will be using parallel pens for our calligraphy, not dip pens. You will need at least one parallel pen (I recommend the 3.8 mm nib). You'll need to be able to print the practise sheets (PDF's) on good quality white printer paper. 

There are a ton of exercises for you to do that will help you improve your calligraphy, as well as two projects (a thank you card and a certificate).

This course is more than just analysing handwriting, it is more about analysing your own self, finding new realisations that you have never had before, releasing yourself completely and exploring an improved self.

Graphology, in simple words, is the art of analysing handwriting to know about a person's character and personality. Graphology is a known yet a new field to be explored. Take graphology as an opportunity to know more about you, about others and also how you want to seek success in your life. Take it as a next big step, and give it your complete will to understand and commit.

Graphotherapy is another branch or Graphology which not only just analyses handwriting but also makes changes in handwriting, thereby providing major and minor improvements in a person's life. So, this is not just knowing but also an opportunity to make changes and improvements. Graphotherapy not only makes changes just in a behaviour of an individual but also helps us understand about a person's health and also make those changes needed the improve one's health.

This course is a beginner level course. This course offers you basic on Graphology and a lot more in detail. Take this course as an opportunity and a space for personality development along with new knowledge to gain.

Modern Calligraphy: Flourish Confidently

Students: 418, Price:  Paid

Have you ever wondered how to achieve such natural, organic flourishes in your calligraphy? There are a lot of thoughts out there about how to do flourishes, but none of them really show you where to place them and how to strategically think through them. While there is an element of personal style and flair that goes into flourishes, there are some general rules that you can follow and practice so that you can start to launch your own flourishing style.

In this class...

  • We'll identify seven different locations where flourishes can be added

  • We'll look at 25 variations of flourishes by using and building on basic shapes

  • Practice flourishes within a composition with words and short phrases

You'll also get free downloads such as guidelines, worksheets, and assignments to help you out.

This class is geared towards the calligrapher who already has basic knowledge on how to write the lowercase and uppercase alphabets (I'm coming out with a class on this soon!).

You don't need any fancy tools. Just a pencil, eraser, and my worksheets to get you started.

Let’s begin this journey on flourishing confidently together. I’ll see you in class.

Happy writing!

If you like calligraphy, and the French Cursive style appeals to you, then this course is for you.

If, in addition, you like the idea of a virtual visit to France while honing your calligraphy skills, then this course is DOUBLY for you!

Here's how it works: after the introduction and three general information lectures, you will learn how to form each letter through video demonstrations. Exercise sheets are provided so that you can sharpen your skills through repeated practice. There are 13 lessons dedicated to learning how to form each letter (lower case, upper case, numbers and punctuation).

Next, two practice texts are proposed. Knowing how to write each letter is one thing, putting the letters together to form words and sentences is another thing!

The last part of this course is "A Tour of France". That's right! Starting with the letter A, will will visit Avignon (and practice writing the name of the city on the exercise sheets provided). While watching the instructor do the calligraphy, you will hear a short text describing the city. You will also see where the city is located, geographically speaking, in France. A photo of the city brings a bit of colour to the exercise sheets.

We will do our "tour of France" by moving down through the alphabet, next to Bordeaux, then Cannes ... all the way down to Zoza! As there are 26 letters in the alphabet, there are 26 lectures in this part of the course.

This course will appeal to beginners and those with an intermediate level in calligraphy, although even the most advanced calligraphers will enjoy the Tour of France.

The Carolingian style of calligraphy is one that isn’t “scary”, as the letterforms are similar to those that we read and write every day. There’s good reason for that, as you’ll find out in the section that talks of the historical aspect.

The “Calligraphy Carolingian-Style ” course is packed with exercises and pdf’s to print. Two projects are included for you to do, just to help you get really comfortable with the letters

Students: 134, Price:  Paid

Uncial calligraphy is a script written entirely in capital letters, dating from about the 4th century AD. Its rounded letters make it particularly pleasing to the eye.

This course was designed to be used with a 3.8 mm parallel pen, although any 4 mm wide broad nib will do the trick. All the worksheets are supplied as a PDF to be printed.

After watching the video demonstration, you will practise the letter formation on worksheets. Of course, you can print off as many as you need to master the process! I have included several small projects for you to do throughout the course in order to put into practice what you've learned.

Of course, learning calligraphy has many "side effects", too. It is a wonderful moment when we are concentrated entirely on the task at hand (so to speak); every day worries and preoccupations are pushed to the back of our mind for the time being.

It has been demonstrated that activities such as calligraphy help improve neuroplasticity. If you're 30, that's not a big deal for you yet ... but if you're older than that, you can consider practising calligraphy as good exercise for your brain!

Plus ... a touch of calligraphy in our day-to-day life is a touch of beauty. And there's never too much of that!

So, grab your pen and sign up now!
