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!
Here's what you'll discover in each segment:

Amazing class!!! Learned so much without having to read the procreate manual and thank you Peggy for pointing out all the tiny steps that make your artwork a better project.
This class is so comprehensive! Peggy is a great teacher, she breaks down each section into bits that are easy to understand and do-able. I love her classes! =)
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).
Today, I'm known prominently for hand lettering and my unique line illustrations. I'm thrilled to be sharing them with you!
