In this four week workshop (Thursdays, starting on October 19), participants will learn how to bring words to life through the art of lettering. Although we'll use the iPad and Apple Pencil as our main set of tools, the same lessons and principles from this course can be applied to analog mediums. We’ll walk through the foundational skills that'll enable you to create unique lettering pieces that can be applied to both personal and professional projects.

We will begin by laying a foundation for lettering approaches and understanding type anatomy while learning the technical side of working in Procreate. The second half of the workshop will build on that foundation through sketching and iterating on dynamic compositions and using a variety of techniques to create finished, share-worthy lettering pieces. So whether you're new to lettering, Procreate, or both, you are welcome to join us on this four week journey!

  • How to apply various styles and finishes to lettering pieces.
