What is Brush Lettering?
Brush lettering is a beautiful craft that is a tribute to hand lettering and calligraphy. There are many reasons to learn Brush Lettering. Sitting quietly and drawing letterforms can bring us a sense of peace and serenity. The essence of lettering is to create beautiful artwork with our hands and hearts.
In this class, you will learn the art of brush lettering using a brush pen and water brush. You will learn different watercolor techniques, blending colors, and upper/lowercase letters to help you find your own brush lettering style.
