About This Class


In this class, I'll show you how to create modern folk art on your iPad in Procreate.  I’ll show you every step of my process from planning and sketching to creating brush stamps and balancing a composition.

I'll show you how to:

  • create a single-color symmetrical illustration inspired by Swedish folk art
  • use the free downloadable templates and brush stamps I made to create a balanced, playful piece.
  • combine lettering and illustration to create a multi-colored piece inspired by Scandinavian folk art
  • balance shapes and color around the text to create eye catching illustrations that make your lettering stand out online and in print.
  • create a symmetrical flower and leaf painting using gouache brush textures.
  • combine multiple plant shapes and colors to create a modern twist on Mexican Folk Art.

When you take this class you get all of the brushes and templates I created as free downloads so you don’t have to start from scratch.  I’ll show you how to create your own brush stamps so you can turn absolutely anything into a brush stamp illustration.

All you need to take this class is your iPad and a stylus.  I’ll be using the Apple Pencil, but you could use any stylus, or even your finger.
