About This Class

47c28588

In my Brush Lettering class series, I'm sharing some of my tips and tricks from over 30 years of Brush Lettering experience.

In this class "How to Flourish Lower Case Letters" I'll take you the process I developed in my work as a font designer, that allowed me to create a number of Best Selling fonts!

I'll demonstrate a variety of ways one letter can be changed by utilizing 1 or more of the 15 options in my system.

Then I'll show you how to take a letter from basic to beautifully flourished.

We'll also cover basic set up & body mechanics and warm up with whole arm movement to help you create smooth fluid flourishes.

Lastly I will show you an exercise you can do to further develop your own unique flourishing style.

There are downloadable handouts to follow along as I take you step by step. You'll find them on the "Your Project" page.

So if you have some experience with a brush and want to try your hand at flourishing, or you've already flourished letters but want to learn how a new approach, this is the class for you!

Even beginners will benefit from this process!

Either way, come join me!

Classes in the series include: Beginner Brush Lettering, How to Flourish a Word, How to Flourish Lower Case Letters and more being added!
