Love Kimberly's style of brush lettering! Her instructions, examples, and tempo are perfect for me. Thank you Kimberly!
Thank you, Kimberly! This is a great class for beginners. Your lessons are easy to follow and compact, without any unnecessary information. You went over some of the common beginner mistakes and it was so helpful. I'm fully prepared to continue practicing on my own and develop my own script.
