Start writing faster. It's better to build good habits then break bad ones. When you build your foundation and skills the right way, you'll actually start writing beautifully faster.
Save money and stress. Learn exactly what supplies to buy, which lessons to complete, and what to practice. Say goodbye to guesswork.
Improve your skills. Stop wasting time (and paper!) and make each practice session count. Learn exactly what to practice so that you improve each time you touch the pen.
This course is for the beginner who is looking for a step-by-step process to learn at his or her own pace.
I especially created this course with the busy person in mind because I know how hard it can be to learn when life, work, and kids seem to get in the way.

Hi, I'm Sharisse! Welcome to my wonderful world of brush calligraphy!
I will help you rock the brush pen.
After having a quite unpleasant first experience with the brush pen, I'm happy to show you all the things I wish I knew in the beginning and how you can conquer things faster, better, and with way more fun!
Get ready to rock-n-roll.
I'll teach you to rock, but you've gotta roll. By "roll," I mean put your own pen to the page, crank out those drills, and simply do the work. You can watch all the videos and learn all the things, but you'll truly grow and shine when you take action.
How do I know my stuff?
While I'm no expert, I've grown so much in the past three years. From teaching over 200 students in-person, plus another 600 online, you can say I've been living and breathing brush calligraphy for quite some time!
Learn from me at home... for just 5 minutes a day!
You can stay in your sweatpants and keep your hair in a bun. With this course, you can build your skills in just 5 minutes a day. Each lesson and exercise is super bite-sized because I know what it's like to juggle a full-time job, parenthood, and life. Five minutes a day may not seem like much, but when you do it consistently and do it the right way, you'll be amazed at how much you can accomplish. Don't just trust me, trust the process. That's the secret to enjoying the journey.
No matter where you are in the world, you can start learning today. So what are you waiting for, rockstar?!?! #letsdothis #dontforgetyourcoffee
