About This Class

In this 30(ish) minute class we’ll be breaking down Brush Lettering and making it easy for you to learn! We'll go over guidelines, strokes, practice stokes, pen pressure, and how to break all of these rules to create your own style. By the end of this class we will be creating our very own brush lettered frameable piece of art! :)

These are the pens I use in this class:

Tombow: http://www.amazon.com/Tombow-Dual-Brush-Black-66621/dp/B001LDKB1S/ref=sr_1_9?s=office-products&ie=UTF8&qid=1445910929&sr=1-9&keywords=tombow

Prismacolor: http://www.amazon.com/Prismacolor-Premier-Illustration-Assorted-1738861/dp/B0038D7Y00/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1445910900&sr=8-2&keywords=prismacolor+brush+pen

If you want to have a reference like the booklet to work off of, many of these practice patterns can be found with a simple search. "calligraphy practice drills" We're trying to mimic the calligraphy look, so always look for calligraphy references, not fauxlligraphy.

I'm inspired by her quality combined with speed and the obvious need to practice, practice, practice.
A quick and informational class for the beginner or for review if you're feeling a bit rusty.
