About This Class

Would you like to turn your calligraphy into a work of art for your home? Or perhaps make some extra money selling art prints of your calligraphy online or at local craft fairs? If you're ready to take your calligraphy off the envelope and into a frame, this is the class for you!

In this course, Kimberly Shrack of Hoopla! Letters will walk you through her personal process for creating calligraphy-based artwork. In this course, you will learn:

  • How you can -- and cannot -- use others' quotes in your artwork;
  • How to choose the best materials and sizes for your finished piece;
  • The art (and math!) behind creating layouts;
  • How to achieve balance with flourishes, color and more;
  • Best practices for inking your final piece;
  • How to layout extra long pieces, such as vows;
  • ... and so much more!

If you follow along, by the end of this course, you will have a piece of artwork ready to display in your home! To get the most from this course, it is highly recommended that you first take my Introduction to Modern Brush Calligraphy course as well as my How to Flourish course
