Lettering with the Masters
We've been watching and admiring them for years and now they have agreed to share their lettering knowledge with others through this monthly online call. Some of our favorite visual practitioners, calligraphers and even a graffiti artist are coming together to share lettering styles you can use in your practice.
Mark your calendar! Each third Thursday of the month, we will meet with a different master who will share a new lettering style with us. Note: some calls are recorded due to scheduling conflicts. Complete with an exemplar to refer to, you can use what you learn immediately in your sketchnotes, graphic recordings, studio pieces, and more!
There are two ways you can learn from the masters:
- Purchase the full year and access the entire online course anytime—even past sessions—giving you access to upcoming live and recorded sessions, exemplars, demo notes from each session, photos and extra lettering tips. By paying $240 upfront, you save $120.
- Purchase the month of your choosing to access the recorded session, exemplars and demo notes after the session has taken place. Each session is individually priced at $30 each.
