“My art is featured on fabric collections, greeting cards, and a whole host of other products sold around the world.  I love teaching other creatives how to use their iPads to make professional artwork that stands out online and in print!”

Who is this class for?

  • Creative people who have an iPad, but aren't sure how to use Procreate yet.
  • Procreate users who feel like they've "missed something" because drawing in the app is a constant struggle.
  • People who have an iPad, don't feel creative, and believe they can't draw -- let me prove your wrong!

What Can You Make in Procreate?

You can design artwork for nearly any physical or digital product using Procreate, but here are a few of my personal favorites:

  • greeting cards that I sell to art licensors and in my own online shop
  • stickers and digital downloads
  • illustrations and patterns for print or digital use
  • hand lettering compositions

Need to See Things on Paper?

I created a workbook to go along with this class with notes about all the hard-to-remember stuff.  You can print it out, or have it up in split screen on your iPad when you need it.
