Brush Pen Calligraphy provides a terrific, no fuss way to get started with hand lettering. In this class we will explore the fundamentals of brush pen basics and the basic supplies you need to get started. Create your own beautiful and personal style of brush pen lettering as you work your way through this workshop. At the end of this class, and with plenty of practice, you will definitely gain the tools necessary to develop an aesthetic brush pen lettering style all your own!

In this workshop, you will learn:
– What brush pen lettering supplies you need and how to use them
– Basic individual strokes to create letters, numbers, and symbols
– Practice exercises that will help you continue to improve
– Lowercase alphabet stroke sequences and word layout
