Sketch out some creative ideas for illustrated lettering inspired by your favorite comfort foods—while learning a sprinkling of important Black history.

Skillshare Premium Members are invited to join us on Tuesday, February 2nd at 3:00 PM EST for a live online Zoom session where you’ll get to sketch alongside artist Gia Graham as she comes up with creative ideas for food-inspired illustrated lettering. Along the way, she’ll help us kick off Black History Month by sharing the story of the African American chef who introduced Americans to many of our favorite treats. The session will run for approximately 60 minutes. Click the “Remind Me” button above to register! 

Gia Graham is a designer, hand lettering artist, and illustrator who was born and raised in Barbados and now creates beautiful digital art from Atlanta, Georgia. She has many years of experience working across the design industry, but now focuses on hand lettering, stationery design, and pattern design. A Skillshare top teacher, she’s shared her handy skills, tricks, and techniques with over 18,000 students.

This live session will include:

  • An overview of the different ways you can approach illustrated lettering (which you can explore more deeply in Gia’s latest Skillshare class)
  • The opportunity to see Gia’s creative process in action as she explores different ideas for her lettering
  • The chance to sketch along and get started on your own food-inspired lettering
