What would you do if you actually had an evening to yourself?
Lemme guess, you’ve been told you need to rest and practice self care, but you haven't always prioritized yourself at the top of your never ending list of things that need to be taken care of.
Time to yourself is rare and precious
When you finally do have some alone time, you find yourself just mindlessly scrolling (which never leaves you really refreshed)
Your creativity needs to be exercised every now and then for you to feel like yourself again
The idea of learning a new art form makes you kinda giddy, but you wouldn't know where to start and definitelydon't have time or energy to teach yourself
I’m not here to convince you you need to rest.
You know that. You can feel the exhaustion and know you need a break.
I’m here to give you an option that is right up your alley and will fill up your creative spirit to the brim.
Once I discovered how restful and life giving calligraphy could be, I couldn't keep it to myself!
hey babe, I'm Jordan!
My love of calligraphy was born out a crazy overwhelming season in my life.
I was stuck in a job that was sucking the life out of me, I had a newborn and a two year old that needed all my attention, and my hubby and I felt completely hopeless facing all of the student debt we racked up.
I said yes to way too much and didn’t leave any margin to take care of myself.
When I stumbled upon calligraphy, I was instantly intrigued and found myself practicing all the time.
I loved how it really forced me to slow down and be intentional with each stroke of my pen or paintbrush. Plus I was cranking out all sorts of beautiful things! I just couldn’t stop!
Because I had found something fun and simple, creating white space and nurturing my creative spirit became easier and something I looked forward to!
As my life began to calm down a bit, I thought ‘what if I could create a space for women to step out of their hustle and overwhelm and come learn this new life-giving art form that I’ve found so much joy and creative fulfillment in?’
I’ve been teaching in-person workshops ever since and find so much joy in sharing what I love to do with other women!
I’ve taken my signature in-person workshop and brought it to life online so you can learn this beautiful and fun art form from wherever you are comfiest. (For me, it’s in my jammies with a glass of bubbly!)
This course includes seven core lessons that will take you from rookie status to lettering pro.
Lesson 1: Introduction
I'll welcome you to the course and share a little of my story with you.
I'll talk about all the supplies in your workshop kit so you know what you are working with.
You'll learn why I love watercolors and call this "lazy girl painting."
Lesson 2: Watercolor Basics
I'll show you how to set up when you begin to paint, and how to get the perfect ratio of paint to water.
You'll learn how to create washes, gradient, different sized strokes, and shapes.
I'll teach you the different application styles of watercolor painting, and how to blend your colors beautifully.
Lesson 3: Stroke Practice
I'll show you how to hold your paintbrush and orient your paper, depending on if you are a lefty or a righty!
You'll learn when to dip your brush to grab more paint and add it back smoothly.
I'll teach you how to create contrasting thin and thick strokes that are signature to calligraphy.
We will start with key shapes that will become the building blocks for our letterforms.
Lesson 4: Letterforms
Using the building blocks from lesson 3, we will begin to create our alphabet.
Instead of going alphabetically, we will paint alike letters together. While it will feel a bit out of order, this method will help us master the shapes!
I'll demonstrate and explain each letter of the alphabet.
You can paint along with me, or watch then pause the video to practice!
Lesson 5: Connecting Letters
I'll teach you my easy trick to string letters together to create words.
We will practice words together so you can watch examples in real time.
I'll how you how to add paint when your brush dries out
We will start with key shapes that will become the building blocks for our letterforms.
Lesson 6: Your Signature Style
You'll learn how to manipulate these letterforms to really infuse your own flair and personality.
I'll tell you the secret of how every calligrapher discovered and developed their signature style.
We'll practice playing with variety and even blending colors within a word!
Lesson 7: Final Project
You'll learn how to lay out words for a well arranged design.
Watch in real time as I show you how to paint two different art prints.
First art print: You Belong Here
Second art print: Oh Happy Day!
BONUS LESSON: Whimsical Watercolor Rose
Watch and learn how I paint my signature loose roses.
I'll also teach you how to paint simple and easy leaves.
These are such a fun addition to embellish around words, or even just to paint a floral piece!
You'll walk away equipped, inspired, and ready to paint all the things!
Are you ready for the best part?

Over the past two years, I’ve welcomed over 1,000 women to my local workshop gatherings, where I teach hand lettering, brush calligraphy, and watercolor painting.
I’ve worked out all the kinks and have seen my students' results myself. I know what pain points you may encounter and am ready to offer a solution. This specific workshop, Watercolor Calligraphy, is always my quickest to sell out because of the whimsical and fun nature that watercolor has to offer.
What past workshop students are saying:
I took Jordan's watercolor class and it was exactly what I needed to relax on a Friday night. Jordan was welcoming, sweet, and knowledgeable about her craft. She provided all high quality materials, which really made me feel like I got the best bang for my buck. I highly recommend taking a class with Selah Creative Studio and I will be returning for her next class!
I didn't think it was possible for me to create something decent enough to display in my home - I took the watercolor workshop & proved myself wrong! Such a fun way to take a break from the hustle & bustle of daily life and learn something new.
If you're hesitating - don't! Just do it! Seriously, you won't regret it! Jordan is an absolute delight and I felt lighter and more relaxed around her. She's all about the #SelahTime and I didn't realize how bad I needed that - OH! and the class was fun as well! :) I'll definitely be taking another class with her in the future!
JORDAN IS AMAZING! I've been to her watercolor and brush lettering workshops, and there aren't enough great words to describe her as a teacher and person. The workshops are so informative, but relaxing at the same time. If you need a girl's night with your friends, or just a night to slow down and spend time with other women who want to relax and reflect, I highly recommend any of her workshops.
Just imagine spreading out with your workshop kit on your kitchen table.
You can finally allow yourself to rest in a way that feels funand refreshing
without any guilt, because you deserve to be creatively equipped and encouraged.
I have two goals for you:
You will finish with a toolbox of knowledge (and literal toolkit of supplies!) to start your watercolor and brush calligraphy journey.
Like, you’re totally gonna want to give all your people scripted watercolor paintings for Christmas and now everyone’s going to be asking you to write stuff for them! You’ll discover a love for calligraphy and can retreat to this art form anytime you want. Maybe you’ll even start your own business!
The time you are gifting to yourself right now to be present and try something creative and new will bless and refresh your spirit.
At the end of the day, if calligraphy was just a reason for you to rest and take some time for yourself, that is worth it to me. You are worth that.
Right away! As soon as you sign up, you'll be sent a link to my online classroom where you'll create a unique login. Your workshop kit will be sent out Priority Mail the day your purchase, so you'll have to wait just a few days for that, but you will have access to all the course content immediately!
Will I have lifetime access?
Of course! You have access to this course forever and ever and you can watch back through the video instruction as many times as you like! You will also have any updates that I might make to this course in the future!
What if I already have watercolor supplies?
Whether you are currently using your kid's crayola watercolors or you have a full collection of professional supplies, I don't think anyone can ever have enough of what's included here! I send only high quality materials that I know you will LOVE!
My handwriting is not pretty, is there any hope for me?
If there is hope for me, there is hope for you! My real handwriting is sooo bad, like illegible. I'm not kidding. I am going to teach you how to set aside your regular muscle memory and paint a new set of shapes that will end up being your signature modern calligraphy!
What if I am a total rookie with all this? Do I need experience?
While I made sure to pack in as much valuable content as I could, I designed this workshop for complete beginners! In the video instruction, I break down every step to ensure you CAN do this!
Can I purchase this as a gift for a friend?
Yes! I think this is an AWESOME gift idea! I would suggest purchasing the course like normal so you can present them with the kit as something to unwrap! Email me to let me know and I can set them us as a student in the online classroom!
YOU ARE WORTH TAKING TIME FOR.
I can’t wait to encourage your inner artista and teach you my favorite way to rest!
