Are you ready to learn the ins and outs of how to use the iPad Pro for all of your hand lettering desires? Look no further! In this JAM-PACKED class primarily using the Procreate software, you will learn everything you need to know to get started, create pieces using special effects, and view some sample projects that should open the door to expand your creativity and address the unlimited options you'll unlock in the digital world!
