We will explore a variety of techniques for creating your own fabulous hand-drawn fonts (even if you hate your handwriting). You’ll learn how to add shadows, pattern, and supporting doodles. In this full-day class, we will also focus on composition in order to create a cohesive hand-lettered design. You’ll take away skills you can use to create invitations, signs, art journal pages, or stand-alone works of hand-lettered art!
