Tips for printing:

  • While the majority of this workbook is in black and white, it is recommended you print in color so that you can better see the different colored arrows and downstroke lines. However, if you can only print in black and white, just refer to the PDF on your device while making your way through the workbook.

  • Save paper! Print double-sided.

  • Use tracing paper so you only have to print the workbook once.

  • If you do attempt to use a brush pen or nib and ink for this workbook, it is recommended that you print on at least 32 lb super smooth paper so that you do not ruin your tools.
