Peet freshman begins lessons in caligraphy during Tiger Time

Ninth grade artist Natalie Lang has been practicing calligraphy for over a year and has decided to open a calligraphy enrichment in Tiger Time at Peet Junior High.

“A lot of people saw some of my writing, and they were really interested and wanted to learn how to write so well,” Lang said.

Lang is a self-taught calligraphy artist, and she learned about the art by watching videos on Instagram.

“When I first started calligraphy, I thought that it was going to be super easy, but when I actually put my pen to the paper, it was so much harder than I thought it was going to be.”

Lang is almost always doing calligraphy wherever she may be. In class when she has free time, she found herself writing beautiful decorative words and phrases.

“It is also my stress reliever and can take my mind off of a lot of things that are going on in my life,” she said.

In her enrichment, Lang wants to teach beginners how to do basic calligraphy and creatively express themselves through writing. It took Lang almost a year to get good, and she is still improving as she goes.

She said she hopes to learn something in her enrichment as she teaches others. “You can do it too, but trust me, it’s a lot harder than you think. Just don’t give up. You’ll get better as time progresses, and you’ll have beautiful calligraphy just like mine.”Peet Jr. High students can learn calligraphy in Lang’s enrichment this December by signing up in the December enrichments Powerpoint.
