Learn lettering to add to your professional skill-set and be the envy of all of your friends!

This class is a great access point for a hobbyist, true beginner, as well as for an artist who wants to expand into typography/handlettering.

Have you ever seen all of those amazing lettering pieces and wondered, “How do they do that? I want to learn too!”

Well, now you can!

What you’ll learn:

  • How to model your letters after real fonts so your letterforms look consistent and readable, but still make them your own and inject your own style!

  • How to map out a composition for your word or phrase and begin the sketching process!

  • How to review your own work before you get too far so you can self-correct and avoid common pitfalls!

  • How to finalize your composition and add decoration, shadows, and embellishment!

You’ll go home with all the tools you need to map out and perfect a lettering piece and set yourself up for success!

I’ve taken lettering classes in the past and didn’t ‘get it.’ Jennifer’s class was like a lightbulb going off—I learned so much!

About the Instructor

Jennifer Hines has been an artist and graphic designer for over 20 years, with a specialty in hand-drawn lettering for over 4 years. She studied fine art and creative writing, and has been drawing all her life while nurturing a love for words. When she discovered lettering, she fell in love as the perfect combination of the two! Jennifer is skilled on both hand-drawn and digital lettering on Procreate and the iPad, and has taught hand-drawn lettering sessions in Chicago. She also founded the Chicago Lettering Club, a lettering-based community where fellow artists get together to draw and network, and share a love of letters! She has now relocated to London, UK and is setting up a lettering community and courses abroad.

The class was an amazing class for beginners! It was chill and not judgmental. It doesn’t matter if you’re bad at it. It’s fun!
