Project Description

Custom Brush Lettering Art

b19deb8e

Write your favorite word or phrase using a brush lettering technique. It doesn’t matter if you use the basic guides or if you try to break the rules, experiment as much as you want!

Bonus: Frame your new piece of art and take a picture of it :)

I've included the practice strokes in the class materials. Please practice these strokes before moving on to writing! :)

If you do, try to include them in your project.

These are the pens I use in this class:
