I decided that I was going to teach myself calligraphy for the art project. I have always loved writing and the different styles that come about. Calligraphy writing is something that’s become popular again within the last few years. I bought several books to start learning, and I have realized that it’s like learning how to write all over again. Trying to remember the different strokes is incredibly hard, but satisfying once you get it down. So far, I’ve only practiced different letters, but I spoke with an artistic coworker about the ultimate goal. I believe I want to take the calligraphy and write different VCU related words. The idea is that the words will fit together to make a ram. We will see where it goes, but so far so good!
