I have always loved calligraphy, especially nowadays with all the beautiful hand lettering out there that graces envelopes and logos and chalkboards. My Type Board on Pinterest is filled with calligraphy pins. I love it even more so after I interviewed Alissa Mazzenga of Feast Fine Art and Calligraphy for my Meet the Artist Series. Although I have purchased calligraphy tips and gouache paint, I still don’t know the first thing about calligraphy. So when I saw this online class on Skillshare, The Art of Modern Calligraphy with Molly Jacques, I immediately signed up! If you’ve ever wanted to learn the basics of calligraphy, this looks to be a great intro class as Molly Jacques’ work is so pretty and fun. If you use this link, you can even get $10 off your first class (any class — it doesn’t have to even be this one)! The Art of Modern Calligraphy, which begins September 25, is only $10 with the link — a great deal (especially since she offers a $650 hand lettering and calligraphy class in San Francisco, New York and Los Angeles)!
Skillshare, which I included in my Ten Ways to Learn Photography and Design on the Cheap post, is an online global community where you can learn unique skills from a variety of creatives. They have really cool classes like Food Photography: Playing with Your Food, Learn the Ins and Outs of Illustrator, and How to Start Your Fashion Company. Hopefully, I’ll repost what I’ve learned after the class…and after lots of practice, so I don’t completely embarrass myself. It’s always fun to learn something new — hope you join me!
