About This Class

Are you an iPad user? Do you dabble in Procreate? Do you think about all that Procreate can do but feel overwhelmed as to where to start or how to discover all of its tricks? I gotchu.

As with any sophisticated software for artists, Procreate leaves much to be discovered. We use and will continue to use software for years without ever realizing it's full potential, not to mention all the shortcuts we discover much later and wish we'd known. It's my absolute pleasure to bring you a FULL class on everything Procreate that you didn't even realize you wanted to know! This is a lengthier class, intended to provide you with the tools you need to know within the program so you can create a better workflow, optimize your potential within the program, and most of all, enjoy the discovery. 

You'll learn the following:

  • Tools and Software
  • File Types
  • Importing and Exporting
  • How to organize within the software
  • Canvas sizes and DPI
  • Color Interface
  • Creating custom brushes
  • Working in Layers
  • Selection Modes
  • Overlays
  • Alphalock and Masking
  • Blend Modes
  • Gestures and Controls (quick tips and tricks)
  • Distorting and Warping
  • Symmetry - mirroring and radial
  • Special Effects
  • Multitasking
  • BONUS - Animations

I can't wait to dive in with you and get you geared up for your adventures in illustrating on the go!

Hey hey! I'm Peggy. I'm native to the Pacific Northwest and I love all things creative. From a young age I was dipping everything I could into the arts. I've dabbled in quite an abundance of varieties, such as ballet, fire dancing, crafting, graphic design, traditional calligraphy, hand lettering, painting with acrylics and watercolors, illustrating, creative writing, jazz, you name it. If it's something involving being artistic, I've probably cycled through it a time or two (or 700).
