About This Class

If you’re not quite an experienced hand-lettering artist, it may be difficult, time-consuming, and frustrating to get just the right layout and execution of a hand-lettered piece on paper. Don’t give up!

I’m Carolyn from Loud River Creative, and I will take you through the workflow I use to digitally put together final lettering prints when the pieces aren’t quite perfect. You will learn how to combine the best bits of your hand-lettered work from paper or tablet and bring them into the computer to correct imperfections and create a final printable piece. You will be creating a vector version of your art (we’ll start by lettering your name) that can be printed at any size, in any color. Some basic experience with Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator is beneficial, since those are the tools we will be using in class.

If you’re an artist, designer, or hobbyist looking for ways to tweak and digitize your hand-lettering or calligraphy, this class is for you!
