The history of calligraphy
Calligraphy originates from the Far East, and the masters of the art of calligraphy are Persians, Islamic as well as Western calligraphers.
From the beginning of literacy calligraphers attempted to make letters more beautiful and make them suitable for their main use- to record information.
In the Serbian language phonetic script is based on the rule that a single phonemic sound is written as a single letter. Both Cyrillic and Latin alphabets are used in Serbian language and the monasteries are mostly credited for the development of calligraphy. The educated monks transcribed old manuscripts using the Cyrillic alphabet which was inspired by the Greek uncial script (from the Roman Empire era).
Contemporary calligraphy is defined as the art of giving form to signs in an expressive, harmonious, and skillful manner and is used for the creation of font designs, greeting cards, event invitations, diplomas (certificates), and various documents.
Calligraphy is written on parchment, papyrus and paper and many different tools are used for calligraphy writing – brushes, markers, quills (reed, bamboo, bird feathers) and special felt-tip pens.
Calligraphy – Equipment (tools) se use
All of the required material and equipment will be provided for you and they are included in the course price, the elementary calligraphy set includes:
- A calligraphy pen (with different widths depending on the text size, paper you use etc.)

PAINTING AND DRAWING, CALLIGRAPHY, DECOUPAGE
The mind behind the BAH hobby center and an educator. I am a graphic designer and I’m currently studying painting at the Faculty of Contemporary Arts and I’m coming closer to making my dreams come true. Through many years of working with children and adults I’ve discovered and developed a lot of love towards my work, which is not only love of painting and art, but also an ideal combination of work, hobbies and my life’s calling.
BAH is my baby, it was created thanks to the love and support which was given to me by my loved ones, especially my husband, who is becoming everything I’ve ever dreamed about, and sometimes it seems like he will surpass my dreams and expectations.
