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.
