Project Description

Create a chalk lettered mural in your home

ASSIGNMENT

Create an original, chalk lettered piece for your home. In the class lessons, I create a large-scale mural, but you're welcome to letter your piece in any size using chalk. Chalk isn't permanent, so have fun with it! You can always easily erase. Choose funny, playful, or inspiring words that match the vibe of your space. Happy lettering!

DELIVERABLE

Upload a photo of your final chalk lettered mural. A finished project includes:

  • A sketch of your lettered phrase on paper.
  • A photo of your mural outlines on the wall.
  • Your final mural, including your lettered phrase and flourishes.

CHALLENGE

Sign up for the 2-week Chalk Lettering Challenge here, and join me to create your own mural for your home. We'll send you reminder emails to help keep you on track, and I'll be here to provide you with feedback along the way. I'm even hosting an AMA (Ask Me Anything) session on Monday, July 6th to answer all your questions - stay tuned for more details.
