Are you ready to learn how to draw, paint, and hand letter on your iPad in the iPad app Procreate?  I love helping hobbyists, artists, and designers develop their creative style through short and sweet tutorials!

Every class I create is broken down into bite sized pieces so you can learn how to draw and design on your iPad by learning one little step at a time.  I design projects that anyone can create, and give tips that will help you develop your own style and process.

If you’re into surface design, you could get started with making some repeat patterns on your iPad:

Create Seamless Repeat Patterns on Your iPad

Learn how to create a seamless repeat pattern on your iPad.  With this process you can easily create a repeat pattern on your iPad, without using the computer at all!  You can even upload your patterns directly to print on demand sites from your iPad.  I’ll show you every step of the process of building a repeat pattern, and take you through my process for designing repeat patterns that don’t have an obvious repeat block.

Do I need an Apple Pencil?

No, but they ARE super fun to use.  You can complete these projects with a regular stylus, but the Apple Pencil is pressure sensitive, so the drawing effects will be slightly less realistic with a regular stylus.

What can I do with my iPad art and designs?

Many of my students use their designs for commercial uses like print on demand sites, art prints, and Etsy shops.  Others use the designs for social media posts and personal projects for friends and family.

You can see tons of projects from the artists, designers, and novices around the world who have taken my classes if you join my Facebook group here.
