About This Class

Hey guys. I made this course because it's coming up on Christmas and wedding season and I know a lot of people love to DIY during this time. One of the best elements to a good DIY is knowing how to write pretty! This course will run through the basics of brush lettering with you, from tools of the trade and the eight basic strokes to beginning to develop your own style.

Fun with markers I haven't used in ages. I enjoyed the practice. This is a great class for anyone interested in typography, art, &/or design.

User Experience

It's a good basic start. The best part is it's free, but it does give some helpful ideas. Start with this if you don't know if you're really interested in the paid classes.
