About This Class

Hello & Welcome! I am Amanda, a lettering artist based in Queens, New York. I love lettering and want to share some tips that will help you get started or develop your skills! Lettering is more than just making words look nice. It's expressing the meaning of the words through design.

This 20 minute class is all about the foundation of creating an interesting and engaging composition using a word, phrase, or quote. Some key skills you will take away:

  • word placement/size/style
  • adding embellishments

I hope you enjoy the class!
