There are no secrets creating flourishes

Former students sometimes talk about my unique method explaining and demonstrating flourish decisions. I would rather say it is the result of clarity and my step-by-step structure in this course is easy to follow.

The reasonable length of the videos is another aspect i appreciate in online courses. I have no patience for too long videos if they don’t provide necessary information.

Invest in yourself to get the clarity for flourishes you were looking for and to improve your own artworks. We never feel ready when it is time to take a step ahead.

Orsi Kolonics - Lettering Artist

»Flourishes can create balance, underline the message and please the eyes. I always admired (my) lettering heroes’ work and I often got a bit disappointed, because it felt like I could never create something similarly advanced or extraordinary. The great thing with Robert’s online flourish course is, that he breaks down the complexity of flourishes to a few basic forms. That gave me the courage to start and has made me feel, that I could create something beautiful too. It takes, of course, lots of practice. However, the course has a system and a logic, which is easy to understand and follow. The exercises have guided me through the jungle of flourishes carefully. I have learned it gradually – I am still learning! This course has taken away the struggle and now, I am not afraid anymore to experiment and play around with flourishes.« Orsi K., Lettering Artist

»Those who love flourishes, and want to learn more, know just how frustrating it can be to find an online course that will actually guide you through this difficult journey. Robert is one of my favorite flourish artists. His beautiful flourishing work has inspired many followers all over the world. Fortunately Robert has designed an online course that will make your learning easy and productive. The course provides excellent features: It is well-structured and the instructions are clear. It takes you by the hand and teaches you how to flourish step-by-step. The concepts of flourishing are well-explained, and the tips and rules presented are easy to remember and follow. Included are great videos with clear introductions and explanations of all you need to know in order to flourish sensibly.

The practice sheets and supplementary exercises, along with the videos (with transcripts) reconsolidate your knowledge and skills. Robert inspires you with flourishing ideas, and implements his unique flourishing techniques through the course with examples that are well-illustrated. I especially love the “Tips and Traps” features in the course videos, they make learning flourishing like an exciting expedition and exploration. After learning all the 3 Modules, you will not only know how to appreciate and analyze flourishing styles, but also how to flourish alphabet, letters and even long quotes. And eventually, with enough practices and reviews, you’d be able to flourish like a pro. I highly recomment this wonderfully practial and informative course for those who have had already experience but would like to gain more insights and improve their skills of flourishing, as well as for all flourish-lovers.« Sylvia Chen, Lettering & Calligraphy
