Another great class by Peggy! Learning from her is a pleasure.
Excellent instruction! The lessons are detailed and thorough. I've taken classes from different instructors who just paint without much explanation but this class is not one of them. Peggy explains the technique and gives tips that will help refine your lettering and understand how to use the brush, paint and water to create something truly beautiful.
This was a great class! I've taken several of your other classes but this is the first lettering class using an actual brush that I've taken. It was very instructive and I like to see your examples in real time. It gives time to actually see the letter formation. Thank you for an eye opening experience!

The Pigeon Letters | Lettering & Illustration

I'm Peggy. I'm native to the Pacific Northwest and I love all things creative. From a young age I was dipping everything I could into the arts. I've dabbled in quite an abundance of varieties, such as ballet, fire dancing, crafting, graphic design, traditional calligraphy, hand lettering, painting with acrylics and watercolors, illustrating, creative writing, jazz, you name it. If it's something involving being artistic, I've probably cycled through it a time or two (or 700). 

Today, I'm known prominently for hand lettering and my unique line illustrations. I'm thrilled to be sharing them with you!
