    TPK's 2019 Holiday Calligraphy Worksheet Set
    The 2019 Holiday Calligraphy Worksheet set is now available in the TPK catalog! You can find it by clicking here.

    The TPK holiday worksheet printable is a tradition that I started in 2016! Around this time every year, I come up with a few different holiday-themed calligraphy pieces and combine them into a worksheet. That worksheet only is available through December 26th — but! — like the Ghost of Christmas Past, it makes an appearance the next holiday season (and the next, and the next).

    About the 2019 TPK Holiday Worksheet

    This new holiday worksheet is different from others in that it incorporates a lot of reader feedback. Someone asked for simple holiday doodles, which is brilliant! Sometimes the difference between a holiday-themed project and an everyday project appears in a couple of illustrated snowflakes, after all.

    TPK’s 2019 holiday worksheet kicks off with instructions over how to make holiday doodles!

    The worksheet goes on to provide you with lessons over how to make four different holiday greetings. Each greeting starts with a pencil draft, which you then trace over with your dip pen (or a small-tipped brush pen)!

    "Comfort and Joy" from TPK's 2019 Holiday Calligraphy Worksheet Set-(6-of-13)
    The first project you learn how to make is “Comfort & Joy” With Wintry Flourishes.

    Every project included in the worksheet has guided practice opportunities. Consider these opportunities your “training wheels” before you create these projects on high-quality paper!

    Each project in the 2019 holiday worksheet includes tracing and practice opportunities!
    This 2019 worksheet features plenty of practice opportunities. As such, you’ll want to make sure you print it off on a calligraphy-friendly paper such as 32# laserjet!

    The last project in the worksheet pack is a flourished wreath. It’s simple to create and looks amazing on gift tags, greeting cards, or mail art!

    The wreath in the worksheet features black ink and watercolors. It would also look amazing if you made it on black paper with gold ink!

    Exclusive Christmas Card Tutorial Access

    Once again, TPK readers had a brilliant idea: include an exclusive tutorial as part of the worksheet set! I’ve never done that before, but it makes a lot of sense. So, I came up with a Christmas card tutorial that utilizes the “We Wish You a Merry Christmas” Tree project from the worksheet. In the tutorial, you’ll learn how to draft out the tree on a blank watercolor card, then fill it in with energetic watercolors and metallic ornaments!

    Where to Find the Worksheet

    The 2019 Holiday Calligraphy Worksheet will live in the TPK catalog until December 26 of this year! After that, it will disappear until mid-November of next year.

    I hope that you enjoy this year’s worksheet, which I believe to be the fairest and most artistic of them all! If you have any questions about it (or holiday calligraphy in general), please contribute to the comments. I’m always glad to help! A very happy holiday season to you, and thanks very much for reading TPK!
