ONE | Enjoy some relaxation
You may have been entranced by watching calligraphy videos on Tik Tok, but just wait until you pick up a pen yourself. Many of my students comment on how relaxing their calligraphy practice is! In fact, studies have started to show that calligraphy can offer similar benefits to meditation!
TWO | Increase your self confidence
Learning any new skill gives you an instant boost in self confidence! And like I tell my calligraphy students, if you know how to pick up a pen and write letters, your half way there to learning calligraphy! Of all the art forms, calligraphy tends to be the easiest for people to catch on since we learn to write at such a young age.
THREE | Tap into your creative side
"But I'm not really that artsy..." I hear this all the time when I teach calligraphy workshops! And I thought the exact same thing before I tried calligraphy. I like to call it my "gateway medium," because one I unleashed my creativity by learning calligraphy I soon began to learn watercolor. And now I'm a professional artist. And the same is possible for you!
FOUR | Make personal and unique gifts
There is nothing as satisfying as giving that absolute perfect gift! And when you know calligraphy, you have the ability to create a beautiful, one-of-a-kind gifts! Store bought gifts just don't compare to the priceless art you can create!
FIVE | Start a side hustle
Of course, as you improve your skill and start giving away gift, people may even start to ask you to make some things for them! This can be a great way to earn some extra cash! From holiday decor, wedding calligraphy, and even nursery art, the possibilities are endless!
