Come explore the world of brush lettering! In this class we will look at the many lettering effects and styles you can achieve using brushes and brush markers. We will cover a full brush alphabet, letter variations from edgy to flowy and a few basic illustration examples using a brush. Using a wide range of markers you’ll create new letter forms with ease.
Personally, brush lettering is one of my favorite types of lettering. It allows you to create similar looks to traditional and modern calligraphy without needing more than a pen and paper. Sometimes I’ll use brush pens to sketch out designs before I even pick up a pen holder and nib. In this class I’ll show you how to achieve these styles without losing the thin and thick look. The lettering above and below were done using brush markers.
You’ll leave class with a fun new skill that can be used to bring a flare to any project.
This is a beginners class. No previous experience in lettering skills are required.
All class supplies will be provided for you and are included in the class fee. You just have to show up!
