THE PROMISE

You will learn how to use this super powerful application to enhance your own world of art, opening whole new vistas of creativity! This is not hyperbole. Nope.

Procreate is like having an entire studio chockfull of a never ending supply of drawing, painting and collage materials that can go with you anywhere! I'm looking at YOU plein air practitioners, sketchers, watercolorists, oil painters, collagers and cartoonists - and all the others I neglected to mention in my haste to get this info to you...

 

Oh yes, I am a BIG HUGE fan of this set up!

Let me teach you the joys of Procreate.

Procreate is a super powerful app for ios notepads that have the ability to interact with a drawing tool. Is your iPad supported? Check here.

Samples of art made with this set up...
I love using my iPad Pro, Apple Pencil and  Procreate to create stuff like the images shown below. (click to initiate slideshow)

Procreate is a super powerful app for ios notepads that have the ability to interact with a drawing tool.

Whenever I'm out sketching, or sitting in a coffee shop drawing, people stop and ask me what I'm using and how it works. Well I'm happy to share what I have learned in a brand new online class.

Students will need:

  • iPad Pro or notepad with ios

  • Apple Pencil or compatible pencil, stylus or drawing device

  • Procreate installed - from the App Store check it out here. Dudes, it's just $9.99US! It's one of THE best bargains on the planet. Not hyperbole. 

  • High speed internet
     

Students should also:

  • feel familiar with their iPad - you know, be able to open the app and follow walk-through instructions

  • be comfortable drawing, sketching or otherwise making marks on paper (which in this case will be a screen)

  • and have a small (or large) library of photos ready to work with for the collage section of the class

I will share:​

Basics

  • Opening a pre-sized canvas

  • Creating (and saving) a custom sized canvas

  • Setting the background

  • Discussions on the value of developing a habit using Layers

  • Palettes

  • Gestures

  • Application of color to line drawings

Deeper in

  • Preloaded Brushes - size, strength, type

  • how and why to import brushes

  • adjusting, editing, moving and flattening layers

  • export image - the various choices

  • Using the time lapse replay

  • Useful Layer Options

  • Types of images to export and why

  • Organizing Brushes

Further explorations

  • Organizing projects and pieces

  • Common Techniques

  • Shading with Brushes

  • Importing photos

  • Using the Clone tool

  • Using layers to create a finished single color line drawing

  • Creating a multilayered photo collage

  • Specialty brushes

  • Finishes and textures

How to use some of your digitally created pieces

  • How to save for web use

  • How to save for print-on-demand companies, and why

I will cover the basics so students have a deeper understanding of the adaptability of these amazing and powerful tools! Then we'll go deeper in and learn some tips and tricks that bring even more power to this already amazing tool!

I’ll demonstrate how to use some of the output - i.e. some of the things you can do with digital art. Oh yes you can design your own posters, fabrics, wearables and more!

I’ll do live demos of every topic I cover.

There will some shared creative screen time on calls too. And I will be happy to walk you through answers to your questions! Guys, this course is designed to bring you up to speed in a short amount of time. And I want you to walk away with the knowledge you crave!

We’ll have an online forum or Facebook page or similar where students can post progress, make constructive comments on each other’s work, pose questions and share resources.
