Start writing faster. It's better to build good habits then break bad ones. When you build your foundation and skills the right way, you'll actually start writing beautifully faster.
Save money and stress. Learn exactly what supplies to buy, which lessons to complete, and what to practice. Say goodbye to guesswork.
Improve your skills. Stop wasting time (and paper!) and make each practice session count. Learn exactly what to practice so that you improve each time you touch the pen.
This course is for the beginner who has no experience with brush calligraphy and is looking for a step-by-step process to learn at his or her own pace. I especially created this course with the busy person in mind because I know how hard it can be to learn when life, work, and kids seem to get in the way.
Yes! Starting from the very beginning is actually a great way to refine and solidify your foundation and skills. Plus, you may pick up new tips and insights that can really improve your writing.

Enrollment is now open!
Enrollment is open from July 1st - July 15th at this special introductory price.
After July 15th, the price will increase and never come back down. The course will still be worth more than its final cost. The special introductory rate is simply my way of thanking those who register early!!!
Hi, I'm Sharisse!!! I'm the brush calligrapher behind Pieces Calligraphy and I'm so excited to take you on this journey. I live in Sacramento, California with my husband and our twin toddler boys (we have a baby girl due in July!).
Brush calligraphy is my jam.
For the past three years, I've been living, breathing, and dreaming about brush calligraphy. I've taught over 600 students and 17 in-person workshops, plus grew an online audience to over 200,000 followers. Since I began teaching everything I know, the demand for more has never been greater.
Learn from me at home! Yoga pants are welcomed.
Now that I have launched Learn Brush Calligraphy Online, I can finally teach students around the world! No matter where you are, you can start learning today. What are you waiting for, rockstar?!?! #letsdothis #dontforgetyourcoffee
