Hand Lettering Turn Your Words Into Art

Join me in this class as we explore the steps in making your own hand lettered illustration.  You do not need any special pens in this class, just a pencil and a thick and thin black marker will get you going.  I will suggest the pens I like to use if you want to try them as well.  I will walk you through the process of getting your words lined up on your page, filling them out with shape and detail and then adding in your own illustration and flourishes to create a complete design.  

By the end of this class you will be able to make your own hand lettered art which you can use on gift cards, inspiring art posters and so much more.
