Brush Lettering

The beauty behind hand lettering is in the imperfections. Learning how to master flaws and channel them into character is what makes your brand unique to you. Breaking down these elements will give you a foundation that you can confidently build your craft upon.

This class will teach you fundamentals to secure the foundation of your lettering journey. In this experience, you'll discover tips and tricks for basic letter formations, connecting letters and phrases and even illustrative concepts! You will also discover special effects and how to add variety to your lettering with simple tricks.

Botanical Line Drawing

This class introduces botanical line drawing with new eyes by using REAL flowers and breaking them down into lines, shapes, and details. You will learn how to see 3D objects and turn them into 2D objects, giving you a set of tools that will be beneficial for years to come.

Watercolor Lettering

Learn techniques to further your brush lettering skills by applying watercolor techniques. The overall purpose of this workshop is to feel confident practicing Modern Brush Lettering at home using all the information and tools given.

Watercolor Florals

This beginner/intermediate class will introduce florals in a playful, loose form, guiding you through simple strokes that create works of art.
