About this class

I'm SO excited to have all of you join me (and each other!) as we start this creative journey! Three years ago, I decided to teach myself to be a lettering artist. I had no design degree or art school experience, so I had to do a ridiculous amount of research and learn everything the hard way. It wasn't easy, and I want to make your artistic journey easier by wrapping up everything you need to get started (and what I wish I had back then!) in this class. I'll teach you how letters are constructed, go through essential design principles, and help you turn words into works of art. Whether you're a complete beginner or just want to take your lettering skills from basic to so-much-better, this class will give you the tools to turn inspiration, mood and a lot of practice into something awesome.
