About This Class
This class breaks down the fundamentals of basic strokes necessary to correctly use brush pens of all sizes. Beginning with brush pens is a learning curve itself, aside from hand lettering. You must get familiar with how to properly use the brush tip, as its varying pressure and thickness will make or break your piece.
This class does not cover how to hand letter, so if you need to establish your letter formation (which I highly suggest before jumping into using brush pens), first take Hand Lettering: 4 Easy Steps to Modern Calligraphy.
You will learn easy methods such as when to perform different motions with your fingers, wrists, and applying varying pressure, along with the highly desirable techniques such as adding bounce to your hand lettering, blending color throughout your letters while drawing them, an creating additional effect.

I learned so many tips, like how to draw an 'o', bounce lettering, adding watercolour. This is a great introductory course!
Loves beautiful things & wants to create them too
The course goes at a good pace and is just easy to watch - no 'over explaining' which is what I like on these movies as some people spend too long admiring their 5 minutes of fame instead of cutting to the chase. I really enjoyed it (almost finished, not quite but I have referred back to the course several times to re-visit what Peggy has said.)
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!
