A couple of months back, I taught a short class on calligraphy techniques to some homeschooled friends. The students learned to experiment with different calligraphy supplies, including chisel-tipped markers, calligraphy pens with ink cartridges, and pens dipped in ink. We even wrote the old-fashioned way with quill feathers.
Of course, all these tools take time and practice to master. So toward the end of the class, I passed out black-line copies of an illumined verse (The Five Solas) I did several years ago. My students spent the remaining time coloring those in with colored pencils. As you can see below, the results were beautiful.
My students loved it. And my younger children asked to color copies, as well. Everybody enjoyed this little exercise so much, in fact, that I made copies of a new verse (Children, Obey Your Parents) for my kids a few days later. And they worked on coloring this one several evenings in a row during story time.
