There are many reasons we want to learn Brush Lettering. Sitting quietly and drawing letter forms can bring us a sense of peace. Creating beauty with our hands and hearts is the essence of lettering.
Maybe you’re a beginner in the world of hand lettering. Or you have been wanting to explore the art of writing with brush pens. Perhaps you have experience with brush lettering but would like to define your style. These practice worksheets will be helpful no matter where you are in your creative journey.
Stroke by stroke, you will create beautiful letter forms with the help of these worksheets. The drills will increase your hand’s muscle memory and by tracing the shapes multiple times, you will quickly advance your skills to produce steady, fluid lines, curves and letters.
Whenever I begin a new adventure in art and crafting, I immediately think, “How can I teach others to do this? How can I share my love of learning?” These tracing brush lettering worksheets came into being with careful deliberation and countless hours of practice. After a decade of teaching high school English, along with writing and developing curriculum, I now enjoy teaching art and craft classes across the country. I’m so excited to bring my 20 years of teaching experience into a virtual classroom and help people all over the world learn brush lettering online!

“I am a self-taught artist and I thought these days one can learn everything from reading books, blogs, periscope, instagram and youtube. I bought a Tombow brush pen and a Rhodia Pad and thought I am on my way to be a brush calligrapher. I called Kelly in panic one day as I was totally frustrated. My self-taught brush letters have no consistency, I didn’t even hold my pen right. It all looked so easy when I watched someone else did it online. Kelly kindly let me try out her worksheet and I soon find myself building the necessary muscle memory by tracing the letter on the worksheets. Within days my letters are a lot more consistent and I learned how to control my up and down strokes, when to release pressure and when to start pressing down. The design of the sheets allow me to write on top of Kelly’s until I am confident enough to do my own on the last row. I highly recommend “Brush Lettering with Kelly Creates” worksheets.”
