About This Class

Picking up a pen and writing with your hand can help you organize your thoughts and ideas, recall important information, calm your mind, connect to your intuition, and feed your inner artist. And, like any other exercise you practice regularly, you will get much better at it over time. I hope you'll join me. 

In this class, we'll be working on

  • a writing sample and inspiration to improve form
  • a writing sample and inspiration to improve legibility
  • a writing sample and inspiration to improve speed
  • a number of exercises to help you improve any or all of those areas, and
  • review recent research findings on why handwriting is good for your brain

I'll demonstrate paper positions and grips, and we'll go over how to analyze your style with an actual live (non-scripted!) student on camera.
