Come learn the creative art of drawing letters in this beginner level class! Build your skills to add creative lettering designs to cards, chalkboards, paintings, and more. Anything you can write or paint on, you can letter on!
We’ll start out by reviewing the basics, including what tools to work with, how to create and pair different lettering styles, and approaches for putting together compelling compositions. Next you’ll practice the techniques and then apply your new skills to create a hand lettered illustration that is destined for a spot hanging on your wall.
All necessary materials are provided and are yours to take home, including a curated set of writing supplies and The Scribblist Hand Lettering Workbook. The workbook includes alphabet guides and a section full of resources for continuing your lettering journey at home!
Note: If a date is sold out, join the waitlist to be contacted when a spot opens up.
