It's been a few days since I enrolled in the free brush calligraphy class by Liss Smith and I'm loving it! I'd stumbled across the class online and all it required was my email for registration. Upon registering, you'll receive an email with link to the first class. They are fairly short (under 5 min) and I've been getting them daily in my inbox. The bite size videos work wonderfully since I can sit through each quickly and spend as much time as I want practicing each technique. I find it easiest to accumulate a few videos before you start so you have the option of doing more if you become too addicted (which I am!). It's also a great exercise for when I need to unwind for the day.
Below you'll see that my daughter's handwriting notebook came handy for practicing the strokes and lines. After getting a hang of the alphabets today, we took it one step further using watercolor and paint brush.
Once the watercolor paper was filled with strokes and lines, I doodled a bit for fun. This extension step is highly recommended!
So if you're looking to brush up on your handwriting skills, I definitely recommend it as an entry class to try. The brush pens are very affordable (I got mine for $6 on Amazon) and you can use plain white paper or print out the guided elementary handwriting paper templates, available online.
