Hi everyone, we’re starting now Modern calligraphy 101 course aims to teach basic modern calligraphy step by step with a brush pen. It is created as result of the workshops I have organized for a long time at WorkshopArtIstanbul, as well as my calligraphy and teaching experiences with my own materials and teaching techniques. So you can see this course as an Online Basic Modern Calligraphy Workshop. We start with basic exercises in this training; from point to line, line to letter, letter to word and word to composition. At the end of the workshop we also have a bonus lesson. We design our own bags. Instead, you can design your trophy, brace, t-shirt, whatever you have in your ease. Our aim is you can create something with modern calligraphy 101 with what we have learned. Four materials required for the workshop: any brush tip pen pencil, ruler and course materials, ie “Basic Modern Calligraphy Work Booklet”. Now, in this introductory class I will talk about two things: The first of these is “Letter Segments” Our letters have head, body and tail. We determine this according to the pen we use. According to the brush tip I currently use Bic Brush Pen my letter’s head size(ascender) is 3 pen nib. body size(x-height) is 4 pen nib. The tail size(descender) is also 3 pen nib. These are ideal letter sizes. You can change it. Letter a consists only of the body. letter b consists of both the body and the head. Letter f consists of both head and body and tail. A letter y consists of a body and a tail. For example, here I extended the tail of y. You can also make it short. This is the ideal size. You can change it. The most important of all is in the modern calligraphy, the most important is do not change generally the body size of the letter too much. Ideal body size. Of course you can play, you can change and create letters of different characters And second. My letters are all brothers and sisters. Now, let’s look what similarities you will see. I made a letter ‘a’. I made a letter ‘q’. I made a ‘g’. I write a letter ‘c’ Let me make another letter c I made an e. I made a letter d. Now Look at the bodies here. Look at my first round motion. All my moves are the same structure with each other Let me show you something. Now I’m going to make a ‘c’ head. I stopped here. What happens if I close it? Lowercase a letter. If I add a head the letter d becomes. If I extend it down, the letter g becomes. If I extend downwards by giving back, if I go in the direction of writing The letter q becomes. Now Let’s see, Let’s have a look at these. Now let me do an ‘l’ head. This is an l head. I added such a body. It was b. Well, if I do this The letter k becomes. If I start this from here again and bring it back here unlike b It is the letter h. And I draw a horizantal line, maybe we don’t use that much, but it’s the letter t. Let’s write them one by one, see the letters as follows. So Our letters consist of similar bodies, similar heads, similar queues. Now you can move on to the next lesson, we’re starting!
