Class Experience

Differences between hand lettering, calligraphy, and cursive
The basic steps/forms needed for hand lettering
What "faux" calligraphy is, and why is it useful for hand lettering
We will go through the entire alphabet, and each student will learn to write their name.
I have 7 years experience with hand lettering, and have taught workshops on this particular style for beginners. I also am self taught, and this is how I learned the basics of hand lettering. 
Practice pages will be provided that you can print at home! (used for part of the class, and can be re-used for practice at home)
Printable pages will be provided for in class work, and for practice at home. For class, students will need -Paper (can be printer paper, watercolor paper, or multi-media paper) -pencil -eraser -marker (thin tip crayola is recommended, but any markers will work!)
1 hour per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
