Hello Calligraphy!

For this past few months I’m really loving writing beautiful and inspiring quotes from the books I read. Until I saw on instagram that Calligraphy is now a big thing.

Calligraphy comes from the Greek words kallos (beauty) and graphe (writing). It is defined as the visual art of producing artistic, elegant and stylized writing using a pen or a brush.

Then I saw this post that Pampanga has a calligraphy workshop and I registered immediately!

The class was held at Philexcel Arts Center Clark at 1 o’clock in the afternoon. I was really excited as I travel alone to Clark. It was an adventure indeed!

Finally I was able to meet our teacher Miss  Kat of @thepapercat —-follow her on instagram! It’s true that it is a small world, it came out that she was the daughter of my officemate and I saw some of her sketches before.

She and her friend, @theapihabit, patiently taught the five of us in the class the introduction of calligraphy.

Check out her instagram account for more awesome calligraphy and I couldn’t believe that she was practicing the art for just seven months now. She’s like a pro!

Calligraphy is like a form of relaxation to me. You wouldn’t mind time. It’s like a therapy! Go on and try it love!

Practice makes permanent!
