A great place to start.

by Dallin Woolf
This course is a great place to start if you're new to doing calligraphy. This course will teach you how to properly hold a calligraphy pen and perform various strokes correctly. Even though I have practiced by myself for a long time, I still found some of the information quite useful. This lesson is nice and easy to digest.
