Capital letter exercises

Capital letters obviously and impressively start every new sentence as well as proper names. Unlike lowercase letters, capitals are used much less frequently when writing by hand. They look somewhat complicated because of the curviness of the shapes involved. By mastering these simple capital letter exercises, you’ll be able to write capitals effortlessly and accurately every time. It’s important to master each letter separately as each will stand alone in the text.

Stem is the base letterform for the majority of capital letters: A, B, D, F, H, I, J, K, L, M, N, P, R, T, Y.
Excercize is performed by writing one stem at the time. Strive to make the shape consistent.
Oval is the letterform for the letters: O, Q, X, C, G.
Excercize is performed by writing one oval at the time. Practice writing it clockwise and counter clockwise. Strive to make the shape consistent.
Upper tail is more of a decorative element for the letters: F, J, H, K, and also the letterform for T. A letter with this decorative element will not lose its recognisability without it, but will look more graceful with it.
Excercize is performed by writing one upper tail at the time. Strive to make the shape consistent.
Continious angled infinite loop is a part of many capitals, and aimes to help develop effortless movement and transition.
