How does lifetime access sound? Once you purchase the course, you'll have access for as long as the course exists. I really encourage you to try and complete the course on the official 8-week schedule, so you can gain momentum and engage with your fellow students. BUT, I also understand that life gets in the way sometimes. So, you can always come back to re-watch any of the videos, or go through the course all over again at your own pace!
Do you offer any refunds or guarantees?
Due to the digital nature of the course, I cannot offer any refunds once you have accessed the course materials. I truly believe in the value of this course, but please keep the refund policy in mind before purchasing.

As soon as you enroll, you'll get access to all of the lessons, so you can race through if you want. BUT, for those who are looking for more structure, I provide a checklist that gives you suggested practice for every single day for a full 8 weeks. Every week, you'll: 1) LEARN from a new set of video lessons, 2) PRACTICE using the provided worksheets, 3) SYNTHESIZE by completing a fun project, then 4) CRITIQUE your project using the feedback lessons.
What happens if I can't complete the course on schedule?
You'll get the best learning experience by watching the videos and completing each lesson on the suggested schedule. That way, you keep your momentum and watch yourself grow week after week.

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

"I wasn't expecting the difference in my writing to be so great after only 6 weeks. Shinah's curriculum was thorough, easy to follow with and though I am my own worst critic, I can see my growth. It's awesome." - Anonymous Student Feedback

"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've taken a lot of calligraphy courses and workshops over the years and this was the first one where I came away feeling "I can do this!". Shinah provided clear, concise instructions along with materials that I can use and re-use." - Anonymous Student Feedback

"I had tried to teach myself Calligraphy last year and gave it up after a few months of trying but getting no results. Your class was just what I needed! I have continued to practice almost everyday since starting your course and my progress has been unbelievable." - Jordana Hoffman

Shinah Chang
Shinah Chang

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!)
