Here is your entry into the amazing world of Brush Lettering. Brush Lettering is a form of Modern Calligraphy which makes use of Brush strokes to form letters. The art is about creating letters, strokes, and projects with brush pens or brush tip tools. Brush Lettering is a versatile and elegant form of hand lettering and is great for making posters, bookmarks, etc. Distributed comfortably over four days, this is a beginner-friendly session to help you create art, using letters and words.

Day 1: Getting Familiar with Tools and Basic Strokes

Objective: Understand your tools and practice fundamental brush strokes.

  • Get to Know Your Tools: Experiment with holding the brush pen at different angles. Notice how pressure affects the thickness of lines.
  • Basic Strokes Practice: Practice upstrokes (light pressure, thin line) and downstrokes (heavy pressure, thick line). Work on consistency.
  • Drills: Create lines, waves, and simple shapes to get comfortable with the transition between thick and thin lines.

Day 2: Forming Letters

Objective: Learn to form letters using brush strokes.

    • Lowercase Letters: Start with easier letters that have similar shapes (i.e., u, i, t, l) using your basic strokes. Focus on maintaining consistent pressure for each part of the letter.
    • Uppercase Letters: Choose a few simple uppercase letters to practice. Pay attention to the proportion and spacing.

Day 3: Connecting Letters and Words

Objective: Begin connecting letters and forming words.

  • Activities:
    • Connecting Letters: Practice connecting simple letter pairs, focusing on maintaining fluid transitions and consistent spacing.
    • Forming Words: Choose short words to write. Sketch the word with a pencil to plan spacing and connections, then trace with your brush pen.

Day 4: Project Day

Objective: Complete a small project using brush lettering.
