About This Class

Learn Procreate Basics!

During this course, you will learn the basics of how to use the Procreate app on an iPad. In the process, you will learn how to create your own hand-lettered illustrations that you can use as "month starter" posts on Instagram or as background images on your laptop or smartphone.

As a class project, we will create an illustration that combines your written text and small illustrations in your chosen canvas size.

You don't need to have any previous knowledge of Procreate, but if you do, fear not, it will only mean that you will be able to breeze through this course much quicker and focus purely on the creating part of the project.

Can't wait to see you in class!

You will need:

  • An iPad
  • Procreate app (costs less than 10 $/€, at the time of class release)
  • Apple pen (optional)
  • Your virtual creativity hat

Other material:

  • Two free texture files which you will find on the project page
