About This Class

In this class, I'm sharing some of my tips and tricks from over 30 years of Brush Lettering experience ! 

Here's the specifics of what you'll be learning:

• the foundation behind good lettering:

  proper set up, whole arm movement, how to hold the brush, how to apply and release pressure

• the basic strokes necessary to create the letters and numbers of a script style alphabet

• how to create lower case letters stroke by stroke

• how to create upper case letters stroke by stroke

• how to add flourishes to upper and lower case letters to add flair 

• how to put letters together using 3 different styles including Modern lettering

• step by step instructions to create a 5"x 7" sign for the class project

There are also DOWNLOADABLE TEMPLATES in the YOUR PROJECT section to guide you. I've also included 2 easy to follow templates of design options for your final project- a cheerful 5"x7" welcome sign. I hope you'll join me!
