About This Class

In this course, you will learn how to take your knowledge of the basics of calligraphy and turn them into your own unique style! Kimberly Shrack of Manayunk Calligraphy will walk you through the steps she takes when developing her signature styles, from collecting and critically reviewing inspiration to identifying the style anchors that define your look. This is more than a surface review - this course is a deep-dive into the process of a professional calligrapher, and will help get you on the path toward creating a unique calligraphy style that will set you apart.

**To get the most from this course, it is highly recommended that you take Introduction to Modern Brush Calligraphy prior to watching this one.**

This was a great class with a lot of technical instruction that I found to be quite helpful and totally new for me, I am a complete beginner. Thanks a lot and I hope to be able to post the project in the future for now it is to overwhelming for me to complete.
