Calligraphy

Semester 1, 2, Allied

Brief:

Calligraphy is a visual art related to writing. It is the design and execution of lettering with a pen, ink brush, or other writing instrument. Modern calligraphy ranges from functional inscriptions and designs to fine-art pieces. Classical calligraphy differs from type design and non-classical hand-lettering. It is a technique for inscribing words which shows integrity, harmony, and rhythm. The aim of this exercise was to teach and create a sense of curiosity for the subject, amongst the students.

Students:

The exercise comprised of different parts including – Exploring different fonts: This exercise was all about exploration of fonts through texts from our favorite tv series or movie. We also understood how various different fonts are linked together with graphics to form a mural design. Exploration of letters through scripts: Various Indian scripts were explored through their letters. We learntabout how creative, we could be with those scripts. Modification of letters: The ‘Telugu’ language script was explored in this part of the exercise. It taught us, that a script has letters which can not only be used as a means of writing but also be modified and explored as designs or patterns. Design with letters: While exploring the different Indian scripts, we used the letters to also form different visually appealing designs. Exploring designs through scribbles: This was a very different exercise where we explored calligraphy design through scribbles. Dividing the sheets into parts and scribbling out all our frustration through colors worked like therapy for all of us!
