Drawing is a Skill You Can Learn

Everyone was a beginner once. All those ‘insanely talented’ artists? They didn’t start that way.

The trick is learning what to look for, learning how to see things a little bit differently. This class is going to teach you exercises to see like an artist.

  • You'll learn how to draw what you see quickly and accurately with techniques like the clock method, grid method, shape method, and plotting method.

  • We’ll dive deep into shading, including the different kinds of shadows, where to draw them, and a bunch of tricks to make illustrating them digitally fun and easy. 

  • I’ll walk you through my entire process: from reference image, sketches, color, and shading.

Angela Tackett

This has been the most useful instruction I have gotten for not only for the different aspects of drawing but for doing it in Procreate. Brooke's instructions were clear and easy to follow and I can't wait to practice everything I've learned.

Leah Brown

I have a BFA in drawing and this was still SUPER helpful. Loved it. Thank you!

Robby C.

I have learnt SO much: not only about drawing but about shading, selecting, and layering. You are inspirational! I love the way you explain everything in a down-to-earth way without making the viewer feel like a complete idiot. You've paced the segments perfectly so it's been easy to work along with you or hit the 'replay' button to clarify a point. This class and your recently updated Intro to Procreate: Illustrating on the iPad have become my favourite Procreate reference resources.

Lovely class! I don't have an ipad tablet, but the drawing techniques and tips were still helpful for my digital drawing (using a Wacom drawing tablet and Krita) as well as for traditional drawing! Specially enjoyed the upside down exercise.

Rosa Rodriguez

I have learned a lot in this class with Brooke, especially about the different types of shadows. I cannot wait to follow her other classes.


No matter your skill level, this is a great refresher and jumping off point to improve your drawing!! Brooke is so engaging and supportive, you feel like she is truly with you each step of the way. Cant wait for more classes!

Mandy Dixon

Loved this class. Brooke explains things really well, and not so fast that you have to keep pausing. I’ve used procreate for years and I still learned a thing or two. I love the ‘seeing shapes’ lesson, as I struggle sometimes with seeing the shapes. Well done!

Elias Gougos

I find as a complete begginer to drawing it showed me all the basic fundamentals and changed my concept on drawin and gave me more confidence... i highly recomend this class its great and fun also eye opening showing how drawing is a very technical skill.
