I always thought that brush calligraphy was too difficult but Kimberly is a great teacher and I learned a lot from this class. Now I feel more confident in writing with a brush pen and plus it was fun. Thanks, Kimberly.
Amazing course, thank you Kimberly! It's very easy to follow the main steps and I had so much fun! Thank you for showing all the examples and for not talking too much beside practice ;)
Really engaging. Lots of interesting content. Had to pause it a lot to practise- which for me shows there's a high level of practical advice! Loads of great examples, demos and inspiration too.
