Art |
28th June 2018

28 June | Thursday | 10.30am – 4.30pm | Pam Grant | £55.00 | max 10 people

Bring your iPad and achieve realistic digital versions of watercolour, charcoal or pastel sketches using the Procreate app. Fantastic results can be achieved if you are guided expertly and this six hour course will teach you the basics.

To get the most out of this comprehensive day course introducing you to the digital artist’s toolbox, you will need to purchase the Procreate application from the Apple store.

What do I need to bring with me? Any additional costs? 

You will need an Apple iPad with the Procreate app already loaded. Please note that older iPads or older operating systems may not be suitable for the latest version of this award-winning software. Bring your charger cable and plug to recharge the battery on your device.

If you have an iPhone 5 or later you can also download and use the mobile version of the software, Procreate Pocket, which has many of the same features. There is a separate charge for this app.

A stylus is not necessarily required though you can bring one if you normally use it. However all you will need is your digits (fingers) and the digital device!

Please also bring a pen, notebook and your glasses, if you need them.

More details about what the course covers:

Tutor led demonstrations, discussion, example work and handouts will guide you through the process. Pam is an enthusiastic, experienced and patient tutor and there will be plenty of time for questions and one-to-one help.
