About This Class

Do you like the combination of illustration and typography as I do? Even better if it's handlettering? And you like watercolors so much but you're not sure where to start and you worry you cannot make something nice?
Ha! I suggest you try this project! I think it's a very simple one but it allows you to be introduced to watercolors *AND* to create a beautiful card to give to your loved one (or tape it to the mirror! ;) :D )

Hi! I'm Stefania!

I love letters since I was a child, but I never thought one day that coul become something serious... Fondamentally because I wasn't taking seriously what I like.

But fortunately in the last 2-3 years I decided that, hey, those thing ARE IMPORTANT to me, no matter what the world thinks! So now I'm try to find a way to do what I am passionate and curious about: I'm studying calligraphy and painting, mostly as a self-taught.

...But not completely: I have to say that my first approach with calligraphy in my adult life was at the V International Calligraphy Workshop held by Monica Dengo in Venice, October 2014.

Ah, this reminds me that I should mention that I'm Italian (I KNOW YOU THOUGHT MY MOTHER TONGUE IS ENGLISH BUT NO, GUYS!) and I currently live in Athens, Greece.

That workshop was one of the most thrilling experience of my life, and so I "decided" = Monica highly suggested to start studying calligraphy, and so I did, and it was a pain! I found traditional Italic Calligraphy so so so difficult, so after almost a year I decide to take a pause from that and focus on Italic Handwriting and pointed pen calligraphy.

And one year ago I discovered Skillshare, and I just would like to attend all of the lettering classes! I'm so grateful for this platform!
