Hi, my name is Jessica and I'm an artist and today I'm going to give you some calligraphy drawing ideas. So one thing that would be really fun to do is to make a poster that you can hang above your bed. Say your name is Ann, then we would do some nice calligraphy letters that come down and create this lovely way to draw your name. And then of course you can make some little shapes and decorations around your name to bring it out a little bit more and you can even make your letters a little bit thicker on your sign on one side if you like because that's kind of the way calligraphy is. It's usually thicker on one side than it is on the other. Another idea is to draw on say for example, a coffee mug, there are a lot of shops where you can go and you can buy a blank coffee mug that you can draw on however you like. So say you have a coffee mug and you want to write mom on your coffee mug, maybe give it to your mom for her birthday. Then you would get a mug and just put the letters right on there in calligraphy. Again, color one side of them and the O, sometimes the O has this sort of line that goes through it like that and of course again, you can add some little decorations and things. Maybe inside you can even write a secret message, I love you, and that would also be in calligraphy and then every time she takes a sip of coffee, she would see your lovely calligraphy writing inside. And those are a few calligraphy drawing ideas.
