About This Class

In this class, you will learn to create a chalkboard from scratch using chalkboard paint and a picture frame. Then, you will learn the basics of laying out your chalkboard in Adobe Illustrator and will learn how to transfer that design to your actual chalkboard.

She outlines the basics well enough to understand the steps. It was a little quick on the illustrator part, but if you understand the program its no problem. Enjoyed class!

Hi! I'm Kathy of Ocean & Coral Calligraphy. I started out doing calligraphy in 2014 when I came across a class on Skillshare (!!) and I fell in love with the art! Since then, I have expanded my calligraphy skills to include envelopes, invitations, bar signs, chalkboard signs, place cards, escort cards, back drops, seating charts, logos, and lots more. 

I recently published my first Skillshare class on how to create a chalkboard from scratch using a picture frame, chalk paint, and a few other supplies. I would love you to enroll! Check it out here: http://skl.sh/1W1wb1k
