About This Class

Welcome to Brushpen Lettering Techniques: For Beginners with me!

Here you will learn both basic brushpen lettering techniques and fun new ways to use your brushpens for creative lettering and calligraphic works. I will give you a fast paced and easy to follow kind of look into my favorite types of brushpens and how to use them properly.

Brushpens like any other medium, can be intimidading at first. But I promise I will keep trying with new classes to make it easy and fun for you. Once you take the first steps, you will be surprised with the results that you get. So join in, and lets get started. 

This class will also work as a foundation for my brushpen classes that you will witness in this journey. I wanted to give you the perfect start at it. You can follow along and get started right now!

Starting off I was a bit worried because I didn't have all of the pens mentioned, but she uses a standard brush pen only through out. I loved that she recorded her drawings over the shoulder so we can see the proper way to draw. The Capital letters were a bit weird but all the other lessons were A-1, by the end of this 30 minute course I lettered a nice little picture, and actually felt confident with it. I do recommend this course when paired with other hand lettering courses.
