catJoin us for this two-part course, for a general introduction to Procreate, a popular digital drawing software used on the iPad by many contemporary artists.

The course will take students through sketching techniques that will provide the tools to explore Procreate and streamline the sketch-to-final process of any digital artwork they seek to create.

Using Procreate techniques and tools, students will complete the sketch process for a small spot-sized custom sticker illustration and begin to explore basic color palettes to apply to the sketch. 

Students will explore basic technical concepts such as layers, creating and coloring linework, importing reference photos in Procreate, and more concepts students can use to take their work into the digital world.  

The Everson can provide the iPad, Apple Pencil, and Procreate software for the class. Students are also welcome to bring in their own.
