Learning Project: Hand-Lettering

For my learning project, I’ve decided to try my hand (ha!) at modern calligraphy. This is sometimes called hand-lettering or brush-lettering. I was intrigued by this because I started bullet journaling last year and I want to make mine look a little more fancy.

To do this, I will mostly be using instagram and youtube — the bullet journaling and hand-lettering communities are very active on these platforms, and there are countless videos to choose from.

As well, I discovered a website called Skillshare, which offers free (and paid) only classes and tutorials on just about anything. I found a few different hand-lettering teachers on there that I will look into.

Here are a few of them:

  1. Zunaira, you have chosen an interesting learning project! It is so nice when teachers decorate their rooms, label name tags, write nicely on posters, etc.as it helps to create a nice classroom environment- being able to do this will serve you well in your future teaching career! I know for myself I do not have the nicest writing so this would be a very daunting task for me! Best of luck throughout your learning project, I am sure you will do great!

    1. Thanks! I never thought about how this could be used in the classroom, but you’re so right — I can definitely customize my future classroom and make it an appealing place to be for my students.

  2. Calligraphy videos on Instagram were always so mesmerizing to me. I actually had bought calligraphy pens to start learning it myself. However, I just never found the time to learn it. I hope you have more motivation than I do. I can’t wait to see what you write! Best of luck!
