Monthly Challenge


Monthly themes & daily lettering prompts for expanding your creativity, deepening your lettering practice AND becoming brighter in your life!


This Month's Challenge:

Silver Linings April!

In honor of the "April showers bring May flowers" philosophy, we thought it would be fun to make April's theme #SilverLiningsApril and celebrate moments in life when we need a little perspective shift to turn something "bad" into something positive!

Practice your lettering daily by answering each prompt with a silver lining you've found in your own life. Hopefully April will be a perspective-shifting month and we can all improve our art but also find some of those "flowers" to come out of life's showers. 😉🌧🌸 

Remember, share your daily work on Instagram using the tag #BetterLetteringCourse and follow the rules below to enter the monthly prize pack giveaway!


Join the challenge and you could win everything in the prize pack below!


How it works:

Every day, post a photo of your lettering practice on Instagram using the prompt list as your daily subject. Interpret each prompt in any way you like!

Every day you complete your practice counts as ONE ENTRY to win the prize packs up for grabs that you see above. (Max one entry per day for all 30 days of April.)

The more days you practice, the more chances you have to win!

One winner will be randomly selected and announced on Instagram in early May.



1. You can letter any word, phrase, lyric, sentence, etc., but it must be at least one word and the word(s) or phrases must be different every day of the challenge. The April prompt list above is encouraged, but it's not required. You can choose whatever subject you like!

2. You MUST include #BetterLetteringCourse in your caption and be a follower of @HandletteringForBeginners on Instagram.  (Also feel free to include the monthly tag #SilverLiningsApril, but it's not required.)

Please don't post photos of work you've already completed -- the point is to show up that day and create for the sake of practice!

3. You must be a student of the #BetterLetteringCourse to enter. If you haven't joined us yet, it's only $20 for lifetime access to all the videos, teaching you the basics of hand-lettering!
