What You’ll Learn

In this 2-part online course, we’ll start with the most basic shapes of the alphabet. These are the building blocks for hand lettering. We’ll draw letters, then words.

After this workshop, you’ll be able to use hand lettering to make greeting cards, signs, and personal artwork.


How We’ll Meet

We’re offering the class in two sessions over Zoom (link here). There will be two 2-hour live sessions and the recordings will be available for two weeks after class. You’ll receive an e-mail from us with an invitation to the meeting and a reminder of what day and time the class is. During the Zoom meeting, you will be able to see both my face and have a great view of my paper. You’ll have the opportunity to ask questions and see plenty of demonstrations. Class size is limited to 10 students for quality of the workshop.
