Revered throughout the world, the act of producing art from the written language is a skill worth developing. From the walls of the Hagia Sophia and Alhambra to the beauty of Chinese works of art, calligraphy has a beautiful, rich history that dates back as far as writing itself. While calligraphy is most often associated with invitations and certificates, the works of art that you produce will be treasured and enjoyed for years to come.
We offer online and in-person calligraphy lessons tailored to you, your goals, and your interests. Our calligraphy teachers offer one-on-one guidance that will help you produce beautiful artwork and inscriptions.

Online Calligraphy Lessons for All Ages
Handwriting as a skill is useful for all age levels. Children retain information better when they write things down, and calligraphy develops fine motor skills that are useful far beyond pen and paper. Adults develop creativity, relax, and enjoy the meditative qualities of calligraphy while increasing focus and brain activity. In addition, you will create works of art that all can appreciate.
Our calligraphy lessons for kids and adults focus on meeting you where you are, both in skill and maturity level. Individual instruction from certified calligraphy teachers is the very best way to ensure that your needs are met, regardless of age.
Calligraphy Lessons for All Levels
Whether you need calligraphy lessons for beginners or you’ve been writing for years, we have the right teacher for you. Since our instructors work with you individually, they can adapt to your skill level and goals to help you develop the skills you need, rather than teaching to a set curriculum. This flexibility allows you to take the time you need—no more, no less—to learn and grow. As a result, we offer beginner, intermediate, and advanced calligraphy lessons centered around you.
Our personalized model of instruction follows you as your skill level grows. No matter your skills, when you begin with TakeLessons, our calligraphy teachers can guide you as you find your own style and gain proficiency with both brush and pen.

How long does it take to learn calligraphy?
You can learn the basics of calligraphy in just a few hours, but mastery can take months or even years, depending on your goals. Over time, you will develop your own style; many people reach this level in six months to a year. Daily practice (between 30 and 45 minutes) will help you develop skills faster. Your skills will, of course, evolve and develop for as long as you practice the art of calligraphy.
Our one-on-one calligraphy teachers can work with you to develop your skills faster than you could on your own, whether demonstrating how to use nibs and brushes or offering feedback on letter formation and individual strokes. Our individualized model is designed to get you the guidance you need as you need it, allowing you to reach your goals more quickly.
How do beginners learn calligraphy?
Whatever you do, don’t skip the basics! Starting out simply, learning your tools, and focusing on strokes can help you build your skills and make later work cleaner and easier. Beginning with calligraphy drills builds the familiarity, fine motor control, and knowledge that allow later growth.
Practice and the individual guidance of one of our certified calligraphy teachers will develop your skills and have you producing beautiful scripts as you learn the art of writing. Not only can a tutor offer immediate assistance as you are starting out, but they can also help you grow as you become more proficient. Our teachers can work with beginner, intermediate, and even advanced students as they hone their skills.
