  • Skill level: Beginner
  • Video duration: 3 hours (31 video lessons)
  • Link to course
  • Course description: Lettering artist Jess Park shares her techniques for creating colorful watercolor script. You'll learn the basics of pen and brush lettering first, then pluck away at painting plants, stems, and flowers to create wreaths and laurels. From there, you’ll expand your skills, learning how to create illustrations that live inside of a letter or word. By the end of the class, you’ll have all the skills you need to fill your sentence with a sunset or your monogram with a luscious bowl of fruit.
