A Look at What’s Inside

Module 1 : Getting Started

By the end of this first module, you will have an understanding of the specific attributes and terminology of Copperplate Calligraphy. You will have imported your workbooks and pressure sensitive brush into Procreate ready for your practice session. You will understand how to navigate the Procreate interface, and how to use the split screen functionality on your iPad, enabling you to view your practice videos side-by-side with Procreate.

Module 2 : Level 1 – The Lowercase Letters

Now that you are set up in Procreate, it’s time to dive into the hands-on practice sessions! You will start by learning the 8 basic strokes of the lowercase letters. These are the key components to every letter in the alphabet. You’ll then cover each of the lowercase letters, divided up into groups of 5 letters per session (fitting nicely into 20-30 minute practice sessions).

After watching the walkthrough video for the group, it’s over to you! You can use the split screen method on your iPad to bring up your practice video next to your Procreate workbook and refer to this throughout your practice session. The Practice videos are made especially for this purpose, and play at real time to guide you.

Module 3 : Level 1 – The Uppercase Letters

After you learn the lowercase letterforms, it’s time to move onto the Uppercase! The Uppercase letters are very graceful and the gateway to flourishing, but just like the lowercase letters, it’s important to get to grips with the basis strokes that make them up, first. Similarly to Module 1, you practice each group using the Procreate practice workbooks provided, and can optionally view the extra real-time support videos using the split screen functionality on your iPad to have them side-by-side with Procreate.

Module 4 : Level 2 – Letter Spacing, connections and writing words!

Now that you have all letterforms committed to muscle memory, it’s time to see how different letters are grouped into different connection and spacing categories. In this module you will learn what to look for and how to accurately space your letters to create visual balance when writing words. We will practice this through the Level 2 Procreate workbooks provided.

Module 5 : Level 3 – It’s time to Flourish!

Flourishes are usually the main thing that attracts most people to lettering and calligraphy in the first place! They are beautiful embellishments that enhance your lettering and transform it into an art form. There is so much opportunity to express yourself and really get creative. Even if you’ve never tried a flourish in your life, this module will break it down into easy to follow steps to ensure you place them in the perfect positions. We will learn what makes a good flourish and what to avoid. We’ll practice our lowercase flourishes, uppercase flourishes and also learn several decorative flourishes we can use as design elements when composing a lettering piece. We’ll then bring everything you have learned together in the class project and create beautiful flourished lettering!
