About This Class

Welcome to your ultimate guide in modern calligraphy! After about a year of teaching dozens of workshops, I finally decided to launch my class on Skillshare! This class has everything you need to know to get started on the right foot for modern calligraphy: supplies, posture, strokes, alphabets, numbers, punctuation, and a little bit on exploring different styles.

In this class...

  • We'll learn the 8 basic strokes as well as several modified strokes
  • We'll build lowercase and uppercase letters with the strokes
  • Practice words, numbers, and common punctuations

Don't forget to download the guidesheet so you can write along with me! 

This class is geared towards beginner calligraphers, but even the more experienced who need a refresher on the basics will appreciate this class.

Some beginner supplies I recommend are:
