Learn how to use Procreate on the iPad, quickly!

Discover all the hidden tools and gestures that make creating digital illustrations easy and fun.

You'll be up and running in no time with these fun, concise and thorough lessons. By the time class is over, creating digital illustrations will feel intuitive and natural as drawing with pencil and paper. Plus you'll learn how to make and share a timelapse of your art!

As a professional illustrator, Procreate has changed the way I work. It's my favorite tool for creating art. I can draw anywhere: in the car, on the couch, or even in a museum. And you can't take messy paints into a museum.

I can undo a mistake with a tap of my fingers (those of you who already work digitally will get how amazing undo/redo buttons are). And with Procreate, I have all the colors I could want, with just the tap of a button (and without the hassle of cleaning up all my paints).

Best procreate tutorial ever! I have been using procreate for about 6 months, now, and thought I knew quite a bit but found myself saying OMG! over and over again because I didn't know some of the things you showed. Fantastic, perfectly paced, easy to understand, class! Bravo!

This was the best Procreate lesson I took so far and I learned a lot of new information. It was explained in such an easy way to understand, with lots of examples that made soooo much sense and were easy to remember. I even discovered stuff just by seeing Brooke do something (when she was explaining brush settings, she tested the new settings in the brush image area at the top of the settings dropdown - something that I wouldn't have discovered on my own <3). An absolute joy. I also loved that she used different types of artworks for different features, making it easy to understand and remember.

Helpful and entertaining, the cheerful approach was easy to watch, and no chance to get bored or impatient because the presentations were "to the point" and organized beautifully. Thank you!

Kelsey James

This was so much fun! I did not expect this app to be so easy to pick up after this class.

Laura Percy

Wow! Thank you so much for this class!! I just got my ipad pro and I've followed you on instagram and loved your style - this really helped break down the tools for me. I am a graphic designer and have exclusively used adobe suite for the last 8-9 years so I opened up procreate and was so confused how to do anything, just watching this video has opened my eyes to what a powerful tool this is!

I've gone through several classes/tutorials for Procreate, but this one has to be the most in depth that I've seen so far. I've learned some things I didn't know, which for someone who has spent hundreds of hours in the app, I'm excited.

Allison Richardson

Brooke, you have such a fun personality and it really makes this a joy to watch! I picked up so many new tips and time-saving techniques - thanks for such a great class!

Kristen Lavergne

I've been using procreate for a year now and I casually found tips and tricks on google and you tube when I first started. However I felt like i hit a wall with what I was able to get done in the program without getting frustrated. so I wanted to go back to basics and relearn everything properly. Your class was grate because there were so many tips that i had never learned when i first started. Your class is great for beginners or intermediates who need a refresher. thanks!

Oh my gosh, if you just bought an iPad Pro and you like to doodle around ... or if you are an artist and have an iPad Pro you owe it to yourself to watch Brooke's classes! She is so comfortable, clear and has a true gift of teaching! I will check out ANYthing she puts up for us! :)

Heather Rosas

Terrific intro to Procreate! Brooke is a great teacher and I love how she breaks down all the essentials to using this app into little bits. It makes it easy to refer to later, when I forget how to do something. Thanks Brooke!

    You will need the Procreate app downloaded on your iPad. This class teaches Procreate (NOT Procreate Pocket), however I've had many students say they used it to learn Procreate Pocket. But just to be 100% clear, this class is for Procreate and some features may not work in Procreate Pocket.

  • Will this class teach me to draw better?

    This class will teach you how to use Procreate and some basic digital drawing skills. If you're looking for a class to help you learn how to Draw, I check out my popular course 'Learn to Draw'. There's a link at the bottom of this page.

  • What’s your refund policy?

    Due to the digital nature of this class there are no refunds and all sales are final.
