This Project-Based Learning class is a little over 90 minutes long. It is broken down into 5 Chapters and includes 30 video lessons. You'll learn the exact techniques I use to create gorgeous digital watercolor art.

  • We'll cover sketching, digitally inking letters, using Procreate layers, and clipping masks and more all while creating the beautiful "Drink More Water" class project.

  • Included Course Downloads: a Class Reference Guide, Procreate Color Palette, Lettering Template, Copyright 101 PDF, and mockup photo.

Bonus Content

The class includes three bonus lessons!

  • How to Make a Sticker

    I'll show you how to turn your designs into fun stickers and share my favorite place to have durable, vinyl stickers printed.

  • How to Use Mockups

    We'll put our sticker design on a mockup photo right in Procreate. No fancy design software is necessary. Plus, you'll get a free mockup photo to use for this lesson!

  • Copyright 101

    I'm not a lawyer, of course, but I've learned a lot about trademarks and copyright over the years. I'm sharing everything I know with you to help keep you legal when it comes to using quotes, phrases, etc. in your hand lettering work.

  • What Do I Need for this Class?

    You'll need an iPad, Apple Pencil, the Procreate App, and my Watercolor Lettering Kit for Procreate Brushes (available in my shop). Everything else you'll need is included in your class downloads.

  • Why is The Watercolor Lettering Kit for Procreate (the Brushes) a Separate Purchase?

    Instead of including the Brush Kit and pricing the course higher, I decided to offer them separately for those who only want The Lettering Brush Kit. It's also more budget-friendly to price them lower and offer them separately.

  • Is it okay if I'm new to Procreate and/or Hand Lettering?

    Yes! We'll take things step-by-step. I love project-based learning because it makes things more fun and easier to understand. (Note that this is not a full hand-lettering course. We'll focus on the letters in the "Drink more water" class project.)

  • Can I watch it anytime?

    Yes! The class is pre-recorded and you can watch it anytime that is convenient for you. You have lifetime access.

  • What language is the class in? Does it have subtitles?

    The class is in English. It does not have subtitles currently, sorry! That was an added expense and I opted to forgo them to keep the class price down.
