About This Class

This skillshare class is designed to give students an introduction to the world of traditional sign painting.

Hand painted signs have experienced a recent resurgence in popularity as society begins to feel overly digital and stifled by the lack of authenticly and lovingly human-made products.

I've been working as a freelance illustrator and designer for 7 years now, and in the last 3 years have come to focus heavilly on hand lettering and sign painting. In this class i'll share with you my process to design and create your own simple hand painted sign.

I'll take you step by step through:

  • Research
  • Materials
  • Tracing
  • Sketching
  • Painting
