It is the well known fact that calligraphy is a special art that displays your talent in writing and shaping letters perfectly. Many people are under the impression that it is a very difficult art and it requires a person with very neat hand writing to practice it. This has been proved wrong in most calligraphy learning classes. Anyone can master this art with ease.
Since there are two styles of calligraphy learning, namely Western and East Asian styles, you can practice both and master them. However it is advised that if you are a beginner you should practice one style at a time as this tends to be less confusing. If you choose the Western calligraphy style you will require basic nibs, a pen, ink and a marker.
In the East Asian calligraphy style you will need to get some ink stone and an ink block to prepare your ink, a water cistern and different brushes of varying sizes made of different types of hair. Though the ink has to be prepared by you there is always an option of buying ink, for a small amount of less than $22, which would be adequate for the practice period.
