Calligraphy Letters A To Z Capital And Small
Calligraphy Letters A To Z Capital And Small – Looking for fun alphabet letter worksheets to practice calligraphy and writing? Here you will find worksheets with uppercase letters and different styles of lowercase letters of the alphabet.
If you’ve already read my post on calligraphy alphabet styles, you already know the details about letter families. So I’m assuming you’ve already read it, as well as A History of Calligraphy, which looks at the evolution of alphabets, as well as my cursive for the guide.

Those posts I mentioned already cover all the basics and history and also touch on points to achieve your own letter style, so I won’t focus on any of those points today.

I’ll be sharing and focusing on my favorite practice aids to take advantage of the worksheets, as well as examples of 30 ways to write each letter of the alphabet in both uppercase and lowercase.

I think it is so important to start with the most basic concept when looking for worksheets because, contrary to what most beginners think, calligraphy and lettering are very different things.
As a very brief explanation, lettering is about drawing, calligraphy is about writing. Regardless of the tools used, it is the process of creating letters.

When we make letters, we correct, erase, redraw and shape the letters to fit the shapes…
If you want to check it out in more detail, I wrote a whole post on the difference between calligraphy, lettering and typography here.
In order to get the most out of the worksheets I share with you, I have 3 recommendations in this post, on the website, and in the Letter Vault to help you save money when you practice, because printing the worksheets can be expensive, and some pad paper can also get expensive when you try to exercise as much as possible.
1 – Print your worksheets directly on my recommended HP paper and work with brush pens directly on them.

2 – Print your worksheets on any printing paper and use tracing paper on top of the worksheets to practice
3 – Print your worksheets on any type of paper and use a light pad to place a piece of my favorite HP paper over it to see the worksheet or practice instructions below.
When practicing with a brush, the thing is, if you use regular copy paper, the tips of your brushes start to fray. To avoid this, you need to have smooth paper, so below are my favorite options for affordable AND super smooth options.
This is definitely a more economical alternative for paper, I use this exact paper to print all my drill grids. It’s a great way to save money while practicing so you can use your special paper for projects and your brush pens won’t get damaged like regular copy paper.

This is my favorite paper for coloring and also for brush calligraphy because it’s super smooth and doesn’t absorb all the ink like some, but because of that you have to be careful and wait for the ink to dry or you’ll end up with a mess on your hands and the paper! It has 50 sheets and measures 9×12 inches.
After using the Cricut BrightPad for several months, I am a converted believer. It’s so much better than my older light box (link below), little things like the fact that you have to push down to change the brightness prevents accidental hits like I always do with my older light box.
If you don’t want to use tracing paper, a light pad is the perfect solution (and also great if you’re getting into watercolor) I have this one now, I’ve tried some of the more expensive ones and this one beats most of them, it’s worth its weight in gold (way more than its weight in fact, because it’s super light!)
These are new products from Tombow and highly anticipated. The Fude classic black pencils are a favorite of many lettering artists (myself included) AND they are the ones I always recommend to beginners as the nibs are extremely durable and seem to last longer than twin nibs, plus the size is great. one for beginners.

This is the box I mentioned above, they are great brush pens, juicy and with a great flexible tip, they last a long time and if you use them with good paper (smooth) the tip won’t fray easily. The colors are great too, yay!
I really like the selection of colors and the different pens and other tools that Tomow has added to this pack, you have almost everything you need to practice and experiment with colors without having to buy a whole pack of 12 dual brushes and because you get the pack it’s a better deal offer.
These are my current favorite brush pens, with an easy-to-use felt tip and built-in ink feed, they combine the convenience of a regular maker with the distinct linear variation of a traditional brush.
This is one of the best pointers to get started on Amazon, although the price fluctuates a ton, so keep an eye out for when the price drops. Or you can always buy them from Blick, they have the best prices and offers by size.

I love how budget friendly these markers are, they’re perfect for drills and the tips aren’t too soft (you might have to redo them sometimes) but other than that they’re perfect, budget friendly and last a long time. If you’re just starting out and doing a lot of exercise, get a box, you can thank me later 😉
But historically it had 27, “Et” or Ampersand (a) used to be considered a letter of the alphabet, although now it’s just another symbol in English. Like @jonhudson.main with medium sharing:
Et is the Latin word for a. Its use can be traced back to the first century! This is where the ampersand was born. The symbol “&” was created as a ligature (combination of two letters) of the letters “e” and “t” or “et”. It was considered a letter of the alphabet until the early 17th century.– @jonhudson.main from Medium
A great usage example I found via Artemy Lebedev shows the regular 26 letters of the alphabet along with an ampersand at the very end.

The ampersand became a staple of European writing, to the point that it wound its way to the last letter of the English alphabet in all primes by the early 19th century (and began to be removed from them a hundred years later). – Artemy Lebedev
And while the ampersand is no longer considered a letter, it’s still much loved by almost every letter enthusiast I’ve met. The evolution of its shape is nice to see and also to explore.
Upper case letters, also called capital letters, are usually not the letters we start with when we’re beginners because lower case letters are easier and take fewer strokes to complete (mostly).

But I wanted to start with the big alphabet because it’s usually the one that most of the types of beginners I’ve explored need more help figuring out different ways to write.
As I mentioned before, lowercase letters are usually the first ones we start with when learning brush calligraphy and lettering. They usually require fewer moves and are easier to understand once the basic moves are mastered.
So if you’re using the FREE worksheet I’m giving away at the bottom of the post, make sure you start with lowercase =]
