Course Description

Western calligraphy is a great personal hobby. Calligraphy gives you the capability to personalize many items and gifts.
 
This Western Calligraphy course teaches you how to create beautiful calligraphy--even if you have no artistic experience. This course provides you with the expert guidance, HD Video tutorials, step-by-step directions, and hands-on activities with feedback so you can learn how to create a wide variety of calligraphy to suit any need or occasion. Each letter is broken down into easy-to-learn parts, until the complete letter is mastered.
 
You do not need drawing experience to do this course. Young and old can learn calligraphy. Once you learn beautiful calligraphy, you will be ready to share your creativity with the world through gifts, bazaars, craft shops, craft shows, home decor, trade shows, and more. You will be able to use your new-found calligraphy skills to draw amazing letters on cards, stationary, bags, memory pages in your scrapbooks, photo albums covers, clothing, walls, wood, frames, lunch bags, and many other surfaces. 
 
Today is the day for you to jump in and learn a new hobby that will enrich your life. Learning at home and at your own pace is what this course is all about. And best of all, Nancy is there for you everyday! So let's get started!
