What over 3,000 students are saying...
"As soon as I bought the course, I started watching it and practicing like crazy. Now there are pieces of paper and pens everywhere in the house because where ever I go, I want to sit down and write! I just started brush lettering in the beginning of February. I went to a friend's wedding and they had brush pens for people to write in the guestbook. I thought these pens are amazing! So, I started researching about different brush pens and watched a lot of YouTube clips and I thought to myself - I've got to try this out. So I rushed down to the nearest office supply store and bought myself some Tombow dual brush markers. I wish I had found your website earlier, then I could have saved myself so much time and saved these pens too because now they seem a bit frayed from all of the copy paper I have been using.
I thought I already knew quite a bit about brush lettering. But now after starting the course, I realized there is still so much to learn!
Your clips are amazing and you are such a good teacher. Looking forward to continuing on and brushing up my skills!"
"There are no better courses out there! (Believe me, I know what I'm talking about because I took a course with someone else who is huge on Instagram and I was so disappointed.) This course showed me exactly how to create each and every letter and it was fun too! Amanda is an incredible teacher!"
“I ran across your Instagram account by coincidence after watching hundreds of calligraphy videos. When I saw you were launching your first lettering course I decided this would be my opportunity learn how to letter and help ease my mind after work every day. I have found so much comfort and joy in learning how to letter with your course. Thank you so much for taking the time to create it, it’s been my life saver!”
"I was that girl who said "I can never do calligraphy -- my handwriting is too ugly." But I signed up for your beginner course the minute you launched it way back when. Because of you, I jumped head on into calligraphy. In 6 months, I gained 11k followers!! Holy cow right?
Atlanta Voyage Magazine just reached out to me and wanted to feature me, ME of all the people! They're asking me questions like why or how I started and I just wanted to say my answer is and will be - YOU!"
