Class Description

Pointed Pen Scripts with a little spice and flare – now that’s what I’m talking about! We will take a look at traditional scripts as a sounding board, then leap into new adventures with confidence as we explore just what this great little tool can do. We’ll give our lettering a fresh, more contemporary look but with style and grace….and a lot of fun!
