Learning calligraphy is my artistic goal for the year, and ‘Show Me Your Drills’ is a course by Becca Courtice where she teaches the basics of calligraphy. I signed up for the course last year, but life got in the way and I didn’t finish. Honestly, I just didn’t make the time. So, this time around, I am going to blog my progress through the course for accountability. Last week was the first week and I didn’t do any of the drills. This week I have been practicing.
You’re right if you think this looks nothing like calligraphy. These are simply the basic drills. Think Karate Kid, “Wax on, Wax off.” These drills supply the necessary strokes, which will eventually lead to calligraphy…as long as I keep going. So, for accountability, I will be blogging my progress. Do you have an artistic goal? Tell me about it in the comments.
