About This Class


Graphic is a fully fledged powerful and versatile vector app for the iPad, which I use every day for my design work.  This class will introduce you to the Graphic app and we will use a range of the tools to produce a greetings card which can be printed on your home printer. You’ll learn to set up your reusable card template, use text, import images, use the shape tools, the pencil tool and the pen tool.  I’ll share some handy tips along the way too.  This class is suitable for beginners and no previous experience is needed.

Don’t forget to follow me to be kept up to date with my new classes.

For this class you'll need an iPad, and the Graphic app:

Nic takes us through all the steps to familiarize us with a great vector program for the iPad. I am so excited to use this more! She makes it fun and easy! Thanks for another great class!

Nic’s classes are always so easy to follow and she has a lovely, calm voice that is beautiful to listen to. I first learned about Procreate from Nic but now I suspect that Graphic is going to replace it as my go-to app. Thank you so much for giving me yet another outlet for my creativity! :-)
