I liked this class a lot! I appreciated Chelle's down to earth way of explaining lettering. She did it in such a way that the mystery was taken away and I was assured-"okay, I can do this!" She presented many different pens and was very reassuring about pens, paper, and getting one's own style. I also really liked the part on faux calligraphy. Even though I had seen other people thickening their lines after writing the word-I still was stuck on not doing that ,but once again the way Chelle presented it, I felt it was a totally accepted way of doing my letters! Thanks Chelle!
Great beginner class, Chelle! Steady pace and great tips- especially the drills. I really like that you shared your supplies with us, that paper tip came in handy soon!
This is a wonderful beginners class. Chelle goes over her favorite supplies (there's so many pens/markers available) its good to have some recommendations to get started. She also explains upstrokes, downstrokes and faux calligraphy in a way that's super easy to understand. Highly recommend this class to anyone who wants to start brush calligraphy.
