This class will cover the entire lettering process from pencil sketch to inked drawing to digital finish* (optional). We'll start with the basics of drawing individual letterforms and work up to beautiful hand lettered illustrations, building on lessons covered each week. This class is full of tips and tools, demonstrations, and hands on time. Perfect for beginners and intermediate students wanting to learn more. 

Materials List: drawing paper, graph paper, pencils, fine and broad tip markers/Sharpies, tracing paper, and ruler.  Each student will receive a handbook of resources, worksheets, and other reference material covered in class to keep.

*Digital processes will be taught, but not required to create work in this class. If desired, students should have access to a scanner or a camera/scanning app on their phone/tablet, and Photoshop, Illustrator, or Procreate.
