Amazing things can happen when you pair watercolor and calligraphy together. If you’re looking to create beautiful place cards, invitations or wedding signage, you’ve got to check out our new Art + Design class that we’ve added to our growing collection of online courses.
We teamed up with modern calligraphy pro and graphic designer Ashley Buzzy to teach you painting and calligraphy techniques to take all of your DIY projects up a notch!
With Ashley’s fun and colorful class, you’ll learn new creative skills. Your final project will have you walking away with three colorful table tents that you can use at your next dinner party. Plus, you’ll be able to use the skills you’ve learned in this class to create all sorts of bright, colorful and unique designs.
This class is perfect for anyone who is looking to:
- Get a refresher in calligraphy basics by practicing how to use strokes to create words.
- Learn how to create watercolor wash, a reverse-out lettering effect, and watercolor ombre words.
- Create beautiful designs for gatherings, dinner parties, weddings and more.
Ashley helped us curate a fun supply kit that you can use to make it super easy to get started. Our Watercolor Calligraphy Kit ($59) includes a watercolor palette, ink, masking fluid, a pen holder, paint brushes and more!
