About This Class

A beginner level class on the basics of brush lettering taught by Watercolorist and Lettering artist, Brookelle from Soulfully Printed Art & Design.  

Have you ever wondered how people can make words look so beautiful?  And have you ever thought, “I could never make something that pretty by hand..”?

My goal for this class is to show you that YES, you CAN make something beautiful and artistic, even if you don’t consider yourself the artistic type.  (I know this, because I had the same thoughts just a year and a half ago!)

I want to break down the very basic building blocks of brush lettering for you, so you can see, understand, and apply these simple concepts to create something you love.  

The fundamentals we will cover:

  •  Lettering Material Suggestions
  • Brush Pen Technique
  • Basic Calligraphy Strokes
  • How strokes form letters/letter connections
  • Introduction to composition
  • and I'll show you my own creative process as I complete the class project!

By the end of this class, you will be able to create a beautiful, hand-lettered phrase that you can hang on your fridge, frame, or even gift to a friend! 

Whether you have been lettering for years, or haven’t ever picked up a brush pen--you can gain something from this class.  Mastering the fundamentals will give you a strong foundation on which you can build your own unique, artistic style.

Let’s get started!!
