About This Class

Hi! I am Alejandra and I am very excited to share this class with you, I am going to show you how I do each one of my letters and how you join them. We will be practicing flourishes, how to add more weight, how to use your brush pens and some techniques with watercolors too. 

I had so much fun filming this class, I know you will too! Enjoy!!!

Very clear teaching and a lot of information to start you on your lettering journey.
I've watched dozens of videos on brush lettering and find this one to be the most real. I started teaching myself brush lettering 2 months ago. I find no amount of classes can teach you more than just practicing everyday. It is definitely about muscle memory. Having said that, I find this instructor's techniques most closely resembles how you're going to learn. Most of the classes I've viewed on this site are too literal, trying to use base lines, ascending and descending lines as a way to hand letter. I've got a pretty good handle on brush lettering and actually think I do it better than a couple of instructors - not bragging - just a fact. And all the while, I've never used the lines on a paper. Brush lettering is about a rhythm with the pen, paper and your hand. This instructor captures that the best. I say sketch it out like she does, do a few variations and go from there. That's why we like brush lettering so much - because it's free flowing and natural - not perfectly fitting inside a box that I've sketched out with a ruler. Bravo to this young lady! Very informative class!
