Learning to write……

 

I’m a little late to the party but I just signed up to take Joanne Sharpe’s Letter Love 101 class.  The session, actually, began February 1.  She is offering 29 days of wonderful and imaginative classes on hand lettering, in other words, fancy ways to write your “abc”s.

It all starts with a composition book…..recovered!

And some old fashioned practice pages……

If you love to create with lettering or just want to improve your handwriting…this class could be for you.  To learn more, or to just enjoy the beauty of letter forms, go to Joanne's blog.

I checked out her blog. You are so lucky to take this class. I think it would be fun, but I gave up on writing a few years ago when I could no longer grip a pen or pencil. I DO like the "repeat" page a LOT.

This looks like a lot of fun...I can tell you will be making fantastic artistic lettering for your journal pages. Love the idea of practicing in the composition book. Great cover and the "repeat" page is cool too!

This reminds me of my penmanship classes with the old time pen and ink. But way more FUN!
