This lesson is on how to write uppercase letters in classic calligraphy.
This antique style of uppercase letters will come in handy when you want decorative letters.

There are two types of calligraphy styles. One is called the "modern" style and the other is called the "classic" style.

The modern style is more popular these days due to its free and decorative nature.
However, classic calligraphy is also popular for its old-fashioned and antique nature.

This lesson will focus on writing uppercase letters in classic style calligraphy.

The lesson will teach you how to do a clean but fancy way of writing classic style calligraphy, including tips on:

◯how to balance out your letters,
◯how to put pressure on your pen when writing a curve,
◯how to angle your pen in a downstroke in order to get clean letters,

and more...
