Crafting Calligraphy

A new middle school club is beginning, focused around calligraphy.

Few realize the amount of time and effort it takes to master a skill in our fast-moving world. In many cases, people give up their craft too soon. Calligraphy is one of those unique skills that takes lots of patience, but is worth it in the end. At Horizon Honors, middle school students have formed a club to help one another with their craft.

Calligraphy Club is a new club with their first meeting happening on Friday, Dec. 13. It is a wonderful place to learn how to do calligraphy or improve your existing calligraphy skills. Members of the club meet in Ms. Buttrey’s room after school from 2:45-3:30 p.m. I interviewed co-founder Eva Turner (seventh grader) of the Calligraphy Club about her new club.

The Horizon Sun: What inspired you to start Calligraphy Club?

Eva Turner: About a year ago, I got interested in calligraphy and spent hours working on it, but never got very good. When I heard that my amazing friend asked me to join a club she was starting, I knew I wanted to do it. I knew she was amazing at calligraphy and I could learn a lot. 

The Sun: What sparked your interest in calligraphy?

ET: I was watching some videos and noticed some about calligraphy, so I did some digging and found some amazing channels that I would watch for hours.

The Sun: What are some exciting things planned for the club?

ET: Hopefully, we could work on bullet journals, improving calligraphy, and having a great time. 

Remember to come to the Calligraphy Club in Mrs. Buttrey’s room on Fridays from 2:45 to 3:30 to join others interested in the art of writing. If you’re just starting or want to help others perfect their work, feel free to stop by!
