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!

Excellent basic information for beginners
Short, well-explained and a great intro to the subject.
Carmen has an excellent voice & very easy to listen to, you can tell from her information she is an artist and knows the rules of the brush lettering art. I have been brush lettering for a few months and found this to be a nice fundamental class. I would like to see more info on the brush pen options, beginning worksheets, paper choices for practice and final project.
