Calligraphy as healing

May 22nd, 2021

Did you know that there’s a new way to learn something new and also help with self-care? There is. Today’s calligraphy is more freeform, natural, and relaxed way than traditional techniques. That’s what’s awesome about creativity. It evolves, changes, and opens itself to more people to enjoy. Today’s calligraphy offers a chance for so-called “non-artists” to enjoy expression similar to what the adult coloring books have done in recent years. The materials like markers as opposed to quill pens and ink bottles are much easier to work with and use. Online you’ll be able to find lots of calligraphy kits/lettering workbooks for sale so you can ready to go quickly. Some let you practice your lettering with affirmations statements so it’s twice as beneficial. How we speak to ourselves makes a big difference in self-esteem, confidence, and overall well-being. Either way, your handwriting will look better than ever! This would be a fun activity to do together with your young grandkids too. At NoHo Senior Arts Colony, we say ‘write on” to all forms of creativity. Have fun!
