You may be finding this blog post because you saw the Instagram posts and wanted to join this mini-challenge.
If that's the case, and you know what this is all about, feel free to skip right to the bottom to get your free worksheet downloads (but make sure you read about the insane giveaway, too!)
If not, though, and you need a bit more info.... here's the scoop:
Basic strokes are the teeny tiny pieces you need to learn in order to begin creating your calligraphy alphabet. Each and every one of these little pieces put together build letters. (You can read a bit more and see some examples in this post!)
That sounds simple, but really, it takes a ton of practice.
Which is why it's my mission to help anyone and everyone learn these basic strokes. At the bottom of this post, you'll find a link to download a mini-workbook that'll teach you each of the basic strokes- one a day. We're going to be going through these over on Instagram, on the @letteringleague account that I'm taking over this week. No worries if you don't have Instagram, you can still check it out and follow along without creating an account!
Then, starting next week (September 4th), the FULL ShowMeYourDrills challenge will begin- where we'll go through these basic strokes (drills) for an entire month.
Consider this mini-challenge your teaser for the full challenge- and hey, it'll definitely give you a leg up if you're starting early!
PS: This mini-challenge is also going to be my BIGGEST GIVEAWAY EVER! If you're taking part, post a photo of your work each day using the hashtag #ShowMeYourDrills and you will automatically be entered in the draw to win a printed copy of EVERY SINGLE calligraphy workbook I've ever made, PLUS two brush pens! More info over on Instagram!
