About This Class

In this class, you will learn the very first steps of brush pen lettering. We’ll go over some warm-up exercises and drills, pressure strokes and basic anatomy of type. Then we'll see what are the basic letterforms and how to practice them. You can also find the attached worksheet for practicing brushpen lettering from the project description.

At the end of this class, you will learn how to sketch and letter a custom lettered phrase using brush pens. This class will also work as the foundation for other intermediate and advanced class that will follow in coming days. Hope you join!
