About This Class
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.

Excellent class with each step clearly explained and illustrated. The simple techniques really do turn words into art and this is great fun to do. I recommend this class to anyone who likes to draw for any reason.
Fun class! I did the class with my girls, aged 7 and 10, and they enjoyed printing the outline and adding the special effects themselves. The guideline pdf was helpful to put behind my paper to guide the initial sketch without having to put the marks on my paper.
This is a well recorded step-by-step tutorial, focussing on one picture. It is very good for beginners and people, who like to get ahead of themselves and then get less than what they could've had because they missed steps. The voice is pleasant to hear.
Illustrator and Pattern Designer - The most beautiful designs start with the simplest ideas.
Working as a professional pattern designer, textile artist and illustrator over the last 20 years, I have experienced the greatest joy from sharing my passion for creativity and encouraging others to explore creativity in all areas of their lives.
I believe the first step to accomplishing your goals and dreams is to just start. Jump in and learn as you go. Let yourself make mistakes, those are the best lessons. Don't judge your work, just do and then do it again and do it some more. Watch it evolve and look back with awe in how far you have come because you chose to just start!
My goal in my classes is to find the simple and basic ways to help my students of all ages to just start drawing or to spark that desire to get back to drawing. I break the process down into simple techniques that everyone can try and encourage you to keep going, by building on these simple ideas to create more detailed designs.
The simple art of hand drawing is a great creative activity for both relaxation and productivity and for just plain fun. My goal is to design and share, fun, creative, hand drawing exercises that prove just how simple it can be. Most of my classes only require a pencil, paper and pen.
Remember the most beautiful designs start with the simplest ideas.
