Can you teach yourself calligraphy?
Consequently, is calligraphy hard to learn?
The short answer to that question is: No, it is not hard to learn but it is hard to master! Calligraphy is a skill, that takes quite some practice in the beginning until you get the hang of it but you will need years and years of practice until you are a master at it.
Beside above, how much time does it take to learn calligraphy? 2 hours
Keeping this in consideration, can you learn calligraphy on your own?
Learning calligraphy is going to take a ton of practice. There is no way around that. But calligraphy and lettering are specialized skills. And just like you wouldn't pick up an instrument and know how to play a song right away, you can't just pick up a brush pen and be a master at calligraphy or lettering.
