Hi! I'm Younghae of Logos Calligraphy & Design and I'm so excited to be part of your journey! I picked up Copperplate calligraphy in 2014 and since then, have continued my studies by learning under various master penmen/instructors as well as through my own personal practice times and commissioned work.
One of the reasons why I love teaching this script is not only because of the elegance, but the versatility of Copperplate. You can incorporate it into wedding invitation design, envelope addressing, marriage certificates, custom prints, logo design, and more!
After teaching thousands of students locally here in Southern California and online through Modern Calligraphy Summit 2.0, I'm thrilled to offer this course to you worldwide so you can learn from the comforts of your home. I'm looking forward to having you in class <3
