Hand Lettering Alphabet Practice
If you’re a beginner to hand lettering, brush lettering, or modern calligraphy, let me tell you a not-so-well-kept secret: practice, practice, practice. Just like your mom used to tell you when you suffered through piano lessons, practice is the only way to get better.
But I find the one-off practice sheets out there less realistic than I want. I learn by DOING and I want to see the letters in a word in order to:
- learn how to connect letters,
- get a feel for how styled letters move on the line,
- practice how to properly space letters, and
- use real words I would incorporate into designs.

Modern Calligraphy Letters – Letter A
There are so many calligraphy practice sheets out on the Internet, so I wanted to make something a bit different. Modern calligraphy and brush lettering are my faves and I know I’m not the only one, so…
I put together 8 styles which incorporate modern calligraphy letter practice along with a couple brush lettering and light bounce lettering styles.
I’m a sucker for a fun, bouncy font, friends.
The Best Pens for Hand Lettering and Brush Lettering
For modern calligraphy and brush lettering, and this letter a calligraphy practice, I played favorites. The much-loved lettering supplies I am using in this series are:
- my favorite pens (so inexpensive and have a great bounce),
- brush lettering pens (big, squishy heart love for these), and
- watercolor pens (I maybe, sort of, kind of ‘borrowed’ these from my daughter).
