About This Class

An instructive workshop to develop your personal lettering style using watercolor paints.

I am extremely excited to bring my new watercolor class to Skillshare. This is not your typical lettering or calligraphy class. Think of this class as a workshop, with thought out lessons and activities to help you work out a personal lettering style. My goal is for you to create something that is yours and only yours, a signature hand painted letter style that will differentiate you from other artists and help you stand out.

We will prepare using simple warm up activities, go over and practice with a variety of fonts, observe and review the art of some of my favorite illustrators, explore possibilities of our personal handwriting and create a final project with what we’ve learned.

I love Ana's approach to hand lettering! I appreciated not only the time spent going through various styles you can find online, but more importantly, how to hone in on your own personal style. I had no idea that I had so many personal styles of my own that I use unconsciously for different things in my life! Ana is a true teacher and this class is no different. Loved it, highly reccommend!!
Thank you Ana! You are such a wonderful teacher and have taught me soo much! I thought I could never get into watercolor, but your classes have increased my confidence. I am a fashion designer and now I am creating my own watercolor prints for my fabric. I also am in the works of creating my own handwritten font! Thanks for the inspiration and guidance. Peace and love, Kayla Durham
Simply amazing, inspirational, insightful and so much fun!
