About This Class

Spice up your space with chalk! Join lettering artist Lauren Hom for a fun 40-minute class on bringing chalk murals to life. You'll go behind-the-scenes with her process and learn tips for preserving, fixing, and flourishing your work.

Why chalk? Chalk murals can make a space more inviting, and they give you an opportunity to change up decor and show off your personality. Plus, chalk is an inexpensive and approachable medium — all you need is chalk, a bit of chalk paint or chalkboard, imagination, and you're ready to create! By the end of this class, you'll be able to convert a small notebook sketch to a large-scale lettered piece.

This class is all about creating large-scale lettering art by hand. It's perfect for lettering artists and illustrators, enthusiasts, and everyone who wants to bring custom artwork into their home!

Lauren is amazing. I have loved following her hand lettering as a fellow letterer and so STOKED to hear she was making classes for Skillshare. The course is both fun and hella informative. Cheers!
I've been following Lauren's Instagram for a while and finally watched her tutorial! She's incredibly talented and it was fun (& helpful) watching her entire process. Thanks Lauren!!
