  • How to plan the layout and create thumbnails
  • The pencil skeleton as a basis for lettering in a composition
  • Reworking and refinning your final piece
At the end of this class, you will learn how to put together a composition of words in a variety of shapes and styles. Create polished compositions that you can add to your portfolio or hang on a wall.
