Here we find ourselves in a very strange and stressful time. I want to somehow be a small part of helping you feel calm by bringing some lettering into your life.
Calligraphy changed my life 6 years ago, and I knew when I picked up a brush pen for the first time, I wanted to teach and share this beautiful art form with the world.
I will be offering free online Beginner Brush Lettering workshops. In these classes, you will learn the basics of how to use a brush pen, and we will practice the basic strokes.
Click HERE to download an exclusive FREE Basic Strokes worksheet to help you get started on your brush lettering journey. This worksheet is designed for ‘large’ brush tip pens, such as my Kelly Creates Dream pen, but even if you only have a pencil and paper, you can participate.
Remember to use tracing paper on top of this worksheet if you print on regular copy paper otherwise you will damage your brush tips. Regular copy paper is too rough for brush pens.
Here is my YouTube video that shows you how to use this worksheet (Don’t forget to subscribe to my channel!)
If you can’t attend a workshop or would enjoy detailed instruction and inspiration, you will enjoy my book The Art of Brush Lettering, which has step by step breakdowns of all the basic strokes and letters. My second book The Art of Watercolor Lettering was launched in Oct. 2019 and is filled with colourful and beautiful ways to paint pretty letters. Both are available in book stores world wide and online. CLICK HERE to find my book on Amazon.
Here is another exclusive FREE printable worksheet to help you practice your underturns, overturns, and compound curves. Click HERE to download and print. (Remember to use tracing paper on top or use super smooth laser jet paper like HP premium 32 lbs.)
My Kelly Creates line of educational lettering products plus my new watercolor collection can be found in stores and online around the world and in my online store http://www.KellyCreatesStore.com. If this Beginner Starter kit is sold out, you can find these items separately in other online shops all over the world. Click HERE for my Store Locator.
I highly recommend that beginners use a starter kit like this one, which is available in my online shop by clicking HERE. This kit includes the 3 things you need to learn lettering: Brush pens, a workbook, and practice paper pads.
I am also offering free online workshops and tutorials in my new Facebook Group: Kelly Creates Free Classes. Click HERE to join our group. These free tutorials will take place once a month and the topics will be varied.
Hope to see you there! Breathe. Write. Relax.
