Intro to Digital Drawing for the iPad - Procreate

Description

6 WEEK CLASS. Ages 7 - 14. Meets once a week on Wednesday, 4:30 - 5:30pm CST. Dates: Jan 20 - Feb 24

The possibilities are endless with Procreate! Learn one of the most powerful and user friendly digital art platforms available on the IPad. This is a beginners course for students looking to learn techniques and composition for Procreate on the iPad and iPad Pro. Students will learn the basics of the brush library, color pallets, multi layering designs, composition skills and various tips. Each student will draw and design a character and a background which we will compose and color on their IPad, so their images can either be ready to print or shared digitally with their friends and family. TEACHER: Gabe Shaffer

MATERIALS: IPad or IPad Pro, I Pencil or stylus, for digital drawing. Procreate App ($9.99)

CLASS AGENDA:

WEEK 1 - The first day we will introduce ourselves, introduce the basic brush tools to familiarize students with the different options and their applications. The homework assignment will be to brainstorm a character and start a rough sketch using a pencil brush. I’ll teach this day from my studio.

WEEK 2 - We will refine the rough drafts of our characters using the brush library. We will discuss drawing faces, outfits, mechanisms, gestures and anatomy. The homework assignment will be for the students to refine their second draft.

WEEK 3 - We will select a background for our characters. Students will learn how to search for references and use them for creating their compositions. We will discuss multi layering, atmosphere effects and perspective. The homework assignment will be for students to refine their backgrounds.

WEEK 4 - Students will learn how to merge and scale their characters and backgrounds together as one composition. We will refine their work while adding additional elements, by broadening our use of additional brush tools and effects. The homework assignment will be for students to finish their works for presentations. I’ll teach this day from the gallery. 

WEEK 5 - We will review each students’ work and discuss ideas and additional techniques for refining their images. We will learn the different formats and ways to share and print their images.

WEEK 6 - Class concludes with a live presentation for family and friends. I will also share, with the students permission, their work on the Mortal Machine Gallery IG stories, the following evening. So an audience can see what they made and the students can have a little digital art show.

MATERIALS: IPad or IPad Pro, I Pencil or stylus, for digital drawing. Procreate App ($9.99)
