About This Class

Welcome to Level-Up Your Script Lettering! In this class, I’m going to take you through my process to improve your script lettering. You'll learn to tackle common mistakes to make your lettering more cohesive and polished. We'll cover my 5 steps to level up your script lettering, which includes: 

  • Forming smooth connections
  • Avoiding squashed letters
  • Weight balance & Contrast
  • Guidelines
  • Spacing

This class will mainly be focusing on the lowercase letters as that’s the area which needs the most attention. This class is ideal for students who know the basics of writing in script, but want to improve their lettering. You'll learn skills that will help make your portfolio stand out with great pieces of work, or create artwork you can sell online. For this class, there are no required materials, so grab your pencil, brush pen, or iPad and let's get started!
