More about this course

Do you find yourself admiring beautiful calligraphy and hand-lettering on Pinterest and Instagram? I have good news for you, it’s not nearly as difficult as you’d think! Unlike most other artsy hobbies, you don’t need to invest in fancy tools to start learning calligraphy. In this class, we will uncover your hidden talent by learning calligraphy with Crayola markers. These markers are affordable and easy to find here in the States. They are available in office supply stores, pharmacies such as CVS and Walgreens, art supply stores, and even dollar stores. Like many hobbies and skills, practice guarantees improvement.

In this class, you'll learn:

  • Simple warm-up for your hands
  • How to control your marker like a magic wand
  • The basic strokes and why they are important in mastering calligraphy
  • A shortcut for applying what you learn from the basic strokes onto the alphabet
  • The secret of making you look like a pro

What you'll need for this class:

So whether you are new to calligraphy or you have tried to learn calligraphy but have trouble improving your writing, this class is perfect for you. I will show you my very own secret of evaluating your own writing so you can continue to improve.

You don't need to have beautiful handwriting to be a lettering artist. With consistent practice and the tips shared in this class, you'll be impressing your friends with this satisfying new hobby.

I've created tons of resources for you!

  • The Model Sheet gives you an overview of the style you will be learning.
  • The Worksheets are for you to follow along stroke by stroke. You can write directly on the printout or lay a piece of tracing paper and write on the tracing paper instead.
  • The blank guide sheets are for you to practice when you are comfortable writing without tracing over the worksheets

The course project

For our final project, I've created a calendar template for you to write out the name of each month, or whatever word you want!

Don't forget to share your design as well as the progress with the class.
