Penerith: Brush Lettering


Barbara Enright was brush lettering way before it was cool and now's your chance to skill up in our beginners brush lettering workshops around Australia in 2016.

What will you learn?

  • You’ll learn the basic strokes needed to gain control of the brushes to create various letter widths as well as working with the paint consistency and flow.
  • Learn about brush types: round, square and pointed; and which are suited to the different lettering styles such as Casual and Script.

  • Barbara will assist everyone to make sure they feel comfortable holding and manipulating the various brush sizes. She will encourage you to develop your own individuality when lettering with a brush.
