Here's what students are saying about the course:
"Modern Calligraphy 101 is a brilliant course! Shinah shares all her knowledge in an upbeat, positive and enthusiastic way, through videos and printable worksheets. I really can’t recommend this highly enough." - Rachel Brown
"I found this course to be incredibly user friendly and fun. I always looked forward to the next lesson with anticipation. Shinah's personality shined through and made you feel as if you were in the classroom with her. Highly recommend this course!" - Steve Villarreal
"Shinah's class was so thorough! There was so much good information - starting with the very basics to taking your calligraphy to the next level. The supportive network of other students (and of course Shinah) is also a plus! Great class!" - Nancy Moy
"[This course is] full of beautiful printouts (WAY better than the crappy book I bought on amazon), clear direction, and makes it so much easier to figure out the supplies than doing it on your own." - Mina Kim
"When I opened your course the first time I really fell in love with the structure of the course. I can tell that you tried your best to make the course as easy to use as possible - and it works. Indeed it´s really welcoming and approachable." - Marleen Hahn
"Wow! I have improved so much since starting this course! I was always so intimidated by the nib and oblique holder and that calligraphy is for experts or people with beautiful writing. Thanks for this writing therapy! Really warms my heart to just calm down and take things slow." - Nasuha Hamdi
"I'm a little sad that this is the end of the course but also very happy because I learned a lot and improved so much! I feel so much positive energy to keep practicing!" - Lisanne Hurkx
Hi there! I'm Shinah and I'm a calligraphy and lettering artist with a pretty unusual background. I probably should have gone to art school when I was 18, but instead I went in the complete opposite direction - to Harvard University and then NYU Law School. For six years, I worked as a high-powered corporate attorney in a big law firm, and sketched lettering doodles when I got home late each night.
But then! I had an "aha" moment and quit my high-paying job to explore that creative side I always knew I had. After trying lots of different things, I finally took a calligraphy workshop and something just clicked. I had finally found that creative passion that I had been looking for all my life.
Now, I'm a professional calligrapher working with both big companies and tiny businesses. One of my favorite things is teaching calligraphy. I've taught hundreds of students in my in-person workshops. For me, calligraphy is not a stiff, formal, tedious thing - it's full of personality and expression! I truly believe that every person can learn this awesome skill (even if you have awful handwriting!)
