There are all sorts of ways to express your creativity—even if you’re not an artist by trade. You can learn how to paint, for example, simply to give you pleasure. You can take unusual photographs or make collages, learn to sew or sing with a church choir. And you can also, thanks to the availability of more useful, practical tools, learn how to do calligraphy.
Calligraphy, of course, has been around for centuries. Before the invention of traditional pens, practitioners of calligraphy would take bamboo sticks or other implements and dip them into ink.
Now, of course, people can use those traditional calligraphy pens—those that involve putting in ink in tubes and scratching away. Or they can use writing utensils such as brush pens.
These new-style options have a variety of tips that vary in ease of use and capability. Learn more about how to wield them with this graphic.
