We're going to be learning the basics of brush lettering and modern calligraphy using markers and materials found around your house. We'll start with an overview of the cursive alphabet and some basic drills to get the strokes down, and move into writing your own letter forms and developing your own style using free downloadable practice sheets or any paper found around your home. Our time together can be used for practicing lettering or come prepared with a quote or saying in mind to try to letter as artwork!
I'm a full-time freelance artist who specializes in modern calligraphy, sign painting, photography, and more. I have a bachelor's degree from the College for Creative Studies in Detroit and have been working as an artist for 8+ years professionally. I have taught many workshops with POST Detroit at their shop and at Eastern Market, and recently was teaching lettering at some of my favorite local bars and restaurants (Lost River and The Charlevoix GPP). Grab a glass of wine, some of your markers around the house, and lets get lettering! To view my work please check out @upstairsneighbor on Instagram or visit upstairsneighbor.com
