More about this course

In this class, you'll learn how to write two different modern calligraphy script alphabets, and use personalization tips and easy flourishes to create your own unique style! I've also included a bonus sans serif alphabet that you can use to make dynamic lettering layouts.

While this class is meant for beginners, I highly recommend taking the 8 Basic Strokes class first to understand the fundamentals of using pressure to form letters before diving into alphabets.

The course project

The class project is to write the same word 4 ways - once in each of the alphabets I go over, and once in a style that's all your own! There are so many options for writing letters. The main thing is to have fun with it!
