The gateway to beautiful handwriting with curves and strokes for the different age groups.

Handwriting     :     6 to 11 yrs.
Calligraphy       :    11 yrs. and above.

The word calligraphy is usually defined by its two Greek roots: kalli meaning beautiful and graphia referring to writing. The dictionary states "handwriting or penmanship", or simply "beautiful writing". Writing is motion, so we want to know where we are going before we get there. So the question arises how can we get this beautiful handwriting. The answer is consistency. Consistency of shape, consistency of stroke, consistency of weight, consistency of spacing and consistency of rhythm. Although consistency is accomplished through repetition or practice.

It is the design and execution of lettering with a broad tip instrument or brush in one stroke (as opposed to built up lettering, in which the letters are drawn). A contemporary calligraphic practice can be defined as, "the art of giving form to signs in an expressive, harmonious, and skillful manner".

Modern calligraphy ranges from functional inscriptions and designs to fine-art pieces where the letters may or may not be legible. Classical calligraphy differs from typography and non-classical hand-lettering, though a calligrapher may practice both. Calligraphy continues to flourish in the forms of wedding and event invitations, font design and typography, original hand-lettered logo design, religious art, announcements, graphic design and commissioned calligraphic art, cut stone inscriptions, and memorial documents. It is also used for props and moving images for film and television, testimonials, birth and death certificates, maps, and other written works. Some of the finest works of modern calligraphy are charters and letters patent issued by monarchs officers of state in various countries.
