$48 Member | $60 Non-Member

This two-part course will be a general introduction to Procreate, a digital drawing software used on the iPad. It will take students through sketching techniques that will 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 illustration and begin to explore basic color palettes to apply to the sketch. The class will also explore technical concepts such as layers, importing reference photos in Procreate, and more.

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