About the Artform

The origin of Calligraphy with brushes dates back to ancient China during the Shang dynasty. It became more common during the Han dynasty (206 BCE – 220 CE) where it was expected for all educated men and some women to be proficient at it.
Calligraphy with pointed pen is a modern style of art where you use the nib, ink and holder. Unlike traditional Calligraphy, modern Calligraphy gives you the freedom of forming your own styles of letters with some basic traditional techniques.
