Breathe. Write. Relax. 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 calligraphy.
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. My online school and classes 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 my Kelly Creates lettering supplies. The worksheets & workbooks will increase your hand’s muscle memory. By tracing strokes and letters multiple times, you will quickly advance your skills to produce beautiful lines and words.
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 calligraphy worksheets and lettering supplies were designed with careful deliberation and countless hours of practice. American Crafts and I have developed all the tools you need to learn lettering with pens & watercolor. Click HERE to visit my online store.
After a decade of teaching high school English, along with writing and developing curriculum, I now enjoy teaching lettering workshops across the globe. I’m so excited to bring my 20 years of teaching experience into a virtual classroom with my online school and help people all over the world learn brush lettering!
You are only ONE step away from exploring the beauty of brush lettering. Click HERE to visit my online school. You have lifetime access to the class and can progress at your own pace. There are 10 lessons, 30 videos, and printable worksheets for you to download. All you need to begin is a brush pen and paper. If you don’t have supplies, you can find everything you need in my online store.
Here is a YouTube video that demos my workbooks and brush pens that are perfect for beginners!
You can learn the Classic Style or the Bouncy style with my worksheets and workbooks. My online course “Beginner Brush Lettering” focuses on the Classic Style.
If you are learning on your own and prefer not to take my online class, you can either use the printable worksheets here in my website SHOP or use my workbooks and practice pads. There are printable worksheets (digital downloads) designed for both large and small brush pens. I strongly recommend starting with Bundle 1 or 2 of the lowercase alphabet and drills. Next you can learn the uppercase alphabet, and then last you would study the Connections worksheets (words and joining letters).
You need 3 things to start learning: brush pens, a workbook (or printable worksheets above), and a smooth paper practice pad. All of these supplies are what I use in my Beginner Brush Lettering Workshops. You can find Kelly Creates products in retailers all over the world. Click HERE to find stores in your area where you live.
My Kelly Creates brush pens are all wonderful for beginners. The choice is yours if you prefer ‘small’ tip pens or ‘large’ tip pens, however, I always teach beginners with the ‘large’ tip pens, such as the Kelly Creates Dream Pens. Click HERE to see all the pens in my collection.
Always write on super smooth paper. There are 6 Kelly Creates practice pads: Lined, Dotted, Grid, Blank, Black and Tracing. I usually tell beginners to use the Grid but any of them except the blank is good for practice. If you’re using the printable worksheets, then use Kelly Creates Tracing paper on top. Regular printer paper is too rough for brush pens.
My YouTube Channel “Kelly Creates” has so many videos to help you learn. Click HERE to visit my YouTube channel, and don’t forget to subscribe so you don’t miss future videos.
Along with the workbooks, worksheets, and online course, my books “The Art of Brush Lettering” and “The Art of Watercolor Lettering” have EVERYTHING you need to learn to write and paint pretty words. You can find my books in book stores around the world and on Amazon Canada and Amazon USA
I’m excited for you to begin your journey into the world of calligraphy. It has brought so much joy and calm into my life, and I hope the same for you.
