Calligraphy is a form of handwriting used and originated in eastern europe. the word calligraphy comes from the greek words kallos graphes meaning beautiful writing. They use a special pen to write calligraphy, there are different types of calligraphy when you write the special pen has to be held at 45 degrees exactly. Calligraphy is those fancy writings. People sometimes take classes to have great handwriting and stuff.
On the first Tuesday of each month, we learn how to write with calligraphy quills. *Fact: Calligraphy does not use pens- they use quills and you need to use nibs to write and a bottle of ink. A good book with a little information about how to fill up and use a calligraphy quill is in the book "The View From Saturday" by E.L. Konigsburg. Great book too!!! :)*
Hold your pen at a 45 degree angle while writing. Calligraphy is writing with a series of different pressures and lines. Writing in calligraphy is easiest to learn when reviewing pictures of what the letters you wish to draw. Calligraphy also requires a special calligraphy pen or marker. (You can find one at your local craft store or Walmart). See related links for more information.

Calligraphy was so respected by Muslims because they used it to write the Qur'an. The Qur'an told of the prophet Muhammad, his Night Journey, verses, and messages from the angel Gabriel.

No, it is not common to write with brushes/paintbrushes. Japanese calligraphy, an art, is practiced with brushes. Much Chinese and Japanese calligraphy is highly prized and often found on display. Today most of the writing is done using pens, but the original work was done with a brush, and the directions and pressure affected the writing, creating differences to what is often seen today.
