About This Class

You’ve probably seen gorgeous brush lettering work all around you, and it can feel like it’s a special skill that only a few artistically inclined wizards possess, but the truth is, anyone can brush letter! If you just master a couple of simple strokes, you too can brush letter, and all you really need to do is put the practice time in.

Brush lettering is not only beautiful, but it’s also relaxing and fun! So, there’s no reason not to try it!

This is my longest and most comprehensive class yet, but I still kept it fun and easy. In this class we will cover:

  • Supplies - Large, Small, & Bristled Brush Pens
  • Brush Lettering with a Crayola Marker
  • Faux Calligraphy & Monoline Lettering
  • The Anatomy of a Letter
  • Rules to Follow & When to Break them
  • Guided Drills Worksheet
  • Guided Lowercase Worksheet
  • Guided Uppercase Worksheet
  • Making Words by Connecting
  • Bounce Lettering & Flourishes
  • Different Styles
  • Learning by Copying
  • & More! 

By the end of the class you’ll have the skill and knowledge to brush letter whatever you like. I can’t wait to see what you make, so pick up a brush pen, and let’s letter the stress away! :)

I loved this class! I had been buying new brush pens weekly because mine kept fraying within a few uses. I was so happy you mentioned how to hold the pen. I have no trouble at all and have been using the pen the recommended. It also improved my lettering a lot! Thank you!!!
Really helpful for beginners! Thank you for going into so much detail.
Thank you, Yasmina, for a wonderful class! :) Very insightful and for me, as a total newbie to brush-lettering, it' s the perfect thing to start!
