Hand Lettering Basics
Reviewed by Brianna R. on 2/22/2017
This class was amazing! It was great for all levels of hand lettering experience and was a really fun time. Bethany makes the class fun and pushes you to draw something you did not think you were capable of. Having the chance to screen print and having your final design as a print made it even better. I would totally suggest this class to someone who would want to learn the basics or grow their knowledge they already had, or is just looking for a fun new expereince to be creative.

I had a great time learning the techniques of hand lettering and also learning and using the printing press. Our instructor, Bethanny was absolutely, FANTABULOUS!!! She was always willing to ask questions and offer suggestions that worked well with our projects. I can't wait to get her new book

Bethany is SO wonderfully talented and such a great teacher. She's very encouraging and I left after only a few classes much more confident in my abilities and style as a hand lettering beginner. I'd love a level 2 class in the future!
