About This Class

Faux Calligraphy is a basic lettering technique that can be broken down into three simple steps. It is great for beginners because it doesn't require you to understand how to hold a brush and control the tip. 

I consider Faux Calligraphy the "fake it until you make it" skill because it will give the same finished look as real calligraphy or even using a brush lettering tool. Faux Calligraphy does take longer to complete, but that is the trade off for imitating a technique, isn't it?

For this course, I do have practice pages that can help you along the way.

I encourage you do to practice the 10 basic strokes using my Faux Calligraphy Technique.

I also have all 26 Letters of the alphabet and 10 pages of practice words available for you, too.
