When you make your creative practice a priority, you can create projects you’re proud to share.

We know the hardest part of learning something new is knowing where to start.
So, we gathered some of our favorite materials and put it all together in one box to make lettering simple.
This quarter we’ll be exploring the world of brush lettering with two different kinds of brushes and three different types of mediums, including gouache, bleed proof white, and watercolors.

Throughout this quarter (July, August and September), we’ll complete a project together each week from start to finish. Fill your home with inspiring works of art, made with your own two hands.

Meet Nicole

Hello everyone! My name is Nicole Miyuki and I’m honored to guide you through the world of lettering -- a world that has taught me to slow down, to be mindful and to embrace our unique style. Yes, I’ve learned all that from lettering! I started teaching in 2015 and now have two published books By Hand: The Art of Modern Lettering and The Kids’ Book of Hand Lettering. It’s been a wild ride and now I’m excited to be here with the Let's Make Art community.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q. ARE THERE SEPARATE FACEBOOK GROUPS FOR WATERCOLOR AND LETTERING?
A. Yes, we created a new group called Let’s Make Art: Lettering, and we would love for you to join if you’re not already a part of it. We decided to create a new home for those wanting to learn more about lettering. Let’s Make Art: Watercolor still exists and you can most definitely be a part of both.

Q. I AM LEFT HANDED, CAN I STILL DO THIS?
A. Yes you can! If you are worried about smudging, the Tombow Dual Brush Pens are perfect for you. Try rotating your paper to the right or even perpendicular to the table. Remember you are learning something new so it may not feel “right” the first time. Watch Part 6: Tips & Tricks to see this in action.

Q. I HAVE HORRIBLE HANDWRITING? IS THERE HOPE FOR ME?
A. There is hope! Watch the 3 Myths About Lettering Video and your concern will be answered there.

Q. CAN MY CHILD DO THIS?
A. Yes, we believe art is for any age! In addition, Nicole has a book perfect for kids ages 7-12 called The Kids’ Book of Hand Lettering.

Q. I HAVE DIFFERENT SUPPLIES, CAN I STILL DO THIS?
A. Definitely! The beauty of lettering is that can be done with almost any writing utensil. There are different tools that we share, but at the end of the day we want you to letter and join along, rather than get stuck on having the same tools.

Q. CAN I DO THIS WITH THE BRUSH I USE WITH MY WATERCOLOR BOX?
A. Yes you can! Watch Part 2: Tool & Materials to see Nicole demonstrating with a watercolor brush. Just know that the bigger the brush, the bigger the letters will be. We suggest size 0 or 2/0 if you are just started out.

Q. ARE YOU GOING TO BE TEACHING POINTED-PEN CALLIGRAPHY?
A. For now, our lessons are focused on modern lettering with brush pens and brushes. However, you can definitely follow along with a pointed-pen calligraphy nib if you prefer that!

Q. WHERE CAN I FIND THE TUTORIAL VIDEO LINKS?
A. All our videos are posted to the Let’s Make Art YouTube and Facebook pages, and yes they are free!

Q. WHAT ARE THE BOOKS ABOUT?
A. Our teacher Nicole Miyuki has two lettering books that are not required in order to follow along with the videos. By Hand: The Art of Modern Lettering is a great addition for learning the art of modern lettering. The Kids’ Book of Hand Lettering is primarily geared towards kids ages 7-12, but is still fun for all ages!
