Learn lettering to add to your professional skill-set and be the envy of all of your friends!
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! This workshop is big on the skills, but small on the wallet! This amazing opportunity is a once in a lifetime chance to dip your feet into lettering without a big investment!
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!
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!

She also runs the Chicago Lettering Club, a lettering-based community where fellow artists get together to draw and network, and share a love of letters!
