    Taking the idea below one step further, I've had students (one letter per
    student) do the entire alphabet "illuminated" style and assemble them as a
    poster like collage. Very impressive!


    How about an Old English letter and illuminate it. I've had kids create borders
    >and patterns from the basic strokes ( it puts a new twist to the practice of
    >strokes) and then do an Old English in the center of the calligraphed paper.
    >alos , I ve seen calligraphy used inside the shape of the word being done, for
    >example- calligraphy the word apple many times inside the outline of an apple.
