Whimsical Watercolor Lettering

Want more whimsy in your creative life?
I've got the course for you.

Unleash your inner hand lettering artist

Learn the basics of hand lettering design, plus tricks for creating whimsical letters in a course that takes you from beginning sketch, to finished watercolor piece, step-by-step. 

In part 1, we'll use simple design principles and hand lettering techniques to create new fonts and begin to develop your own unique lettering style. There's even a lesson on starting your own hand lettering practice and tips for staying inspired. Once we've played with the fundamentals of lettering, we'll move on to designing a hand lettered piece. I'll teach you my sketch process: We'll test different fonts and layouts, and then transfer your favorite design from sketchbook to final art paper. 

But this course is really two courses in one, because once you've gotten quite comfortable with lettering and sketching, it's time to paint. In part 2 of this workshop, you'll learn many watercolor techniques - like creating a palette, laying down a wash, glazing, and shading - plus we'll have fun adding playful details using paint, pens, pencils, and markers. The techniques I teach you in this class are not just for lettering; they can be used in any watercolor project. I use them every day. And, I've included a bonus watercolor illustration video just for you.

In addition to the thirteen video lessons, instruction packet, practice sheets, and illustrations included with this course, you'll get forever access to tons of free, downloadable content, including additional, regularly updated hand lettering fonts, exercises, and practice sheets.
