If you love watercolor and beautiful letters, boy do we have the class for you! And the best part - no experience needed.

Our Watercolor Calligraphy Class combines the fluid beauty of watercolors with the elegance of calligraphy, perfect for anyone interested in exploring artistic expression through writing. Whether you're looking for a new skill to add to your personal projects or just discover a relaxing new hobby, this class is the ideal starting point--plus, we're going to have fun doing it.

What You'll Learn:

  • Watercolor Basics: Get to know the basics of mixing watercolors, managing water flow, and the use of different brushes for calligraphy.
  • Techniques with Brush and Water Brush Pen: Master the use of traditional brushes and modern water brush pens for creating vibrant letters and stunning gradients.
  • Lettering Styles and Flourishes: Learn and practice various lettering styles to make each piece uniquely yours.
  • Creating a Finished Art Piece: Combine your new skills to create a beautiful, framed piece of calligraphy that you'll be proud to display or give as a gift.

What’s Included:

  • Personalized Instruction: Learn in a small group setting that's informative and (some would say aggressively) supportive
  • Complete Watercolor Calligraphy Kit: Take home a kit that includes a travel tin of watercolors, a high-quality water brush pen, traditional brushes, practice paper, and an instructional guide.
  • Your Own Framed Artwork: End the class with a special session on framing, and leave with your own piece of art elegantly framed and ready to adorn your home.


  • Duration: 2 hours
  • Materials Provided: All painting and calligraphy supplies, including frame
  • 10% off all purchases the day of the workshop

This class will not only give you the foundational skills of watercolor calligraphy but also the satisfaction of creating something beautiful by hand. And when your friends comment on how beautiful it is, you can say, "thanks! I made it!" There's nothing more satisfying than that.
