Tools and Interface walk throughs

Learn about all the tools you’ll need to be familiar with first. The how’s and the why’s explained, so if you’d like to alter settings later on, you’ll do so with confidence.

Project based learning

After tool walk through sections, you’ll complete a project using those tools. This will help you learn the ins and outs of the program while creating beautiful artwork along the way.

Resolution, color modes + exporting

Get started on the right foot knowing how to choose a color mode, size and resolution for your document for the best possible outcome. When it’s complete, you’ll know exactly what to do to hand off your files or export them as needed for any use.

Original Procreate files, brushes and color palettes provided

Follow along exactly through every lesson using the brushes and colors you see on screen. Want to take apart files to understand them better? They’re all available to you in the bonus section of the course.

Made for Beginners

The entire course was made with beginners in mind. We take a slower pace and go through everything in detail. After lessons describing tools or methods, we follow them right afterwards with a project to hit everything home. Understanding how tools work is one thing; using them to create something you’re proud of is another very important one.


Project 1

In the first project of the course, we create a layered text and doodle composition. We utilize selections, layers, brushes, typeable text, our color palette and layer groups. Though it looks complex, the simple application and repetition of these essential tools will play a huge role in the future Procreate artwork you create.


Project 2

Understanding and utilizing clipping masks and layer masks are the primary goals in this second project! We make use of the skills and tools we’ve already learned while setting typeable text, practicing overlapping and underlapping flourishes with layer masks, and we add in hand drawn inline details and texture with a clipping mask and blend mode. We finish everything off by adding some details to the background, set against a vibrant backdrop.


Project 3

In the third project of the course, we combine all of our previous skills with hand lettering! To add extra pop to our lettering, we create seamless color blends with multiple clipping masks and add depth using a layer mask and a soft airbrush.


Project 4

In the final project of the course, we use the guide and symmetry options within Procreate to create a detailed wreath design! We set our own template, apply different symmetry settings to different layers, use different brushes, colors and textures while finishing it off with some hand lettering.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is this really a free course? What’s the catch?

No catch, promise! And yep, it’s a 100% free class - if you enjoy it, I hope you’ll check out some of my other tutorials and classes in the future!

How long can I access the course for?

Forever! As long as Every-Tuesday exists, this course will be available to watch. Take it at whatever pace you’d like, watch whenever, wherever and as many times as you’d like.

Is this a live or pre-recorded course?

As with all of my courses, this course is entirely pre-recorded, so you can take it whenever it works best with your schedule.

Will I be able to access all the videos and bonuses at once?


What will I need to take this class?

You’ll need an Apple Pencil and an iPad that is compatible with the Apple Pencil (in the videos, I’m using a second generation Apple Pencil and a third generation iPad Pro, 12.9”, 256GB). You will also need the Procreate App (version 4.3.3 or newer) installed on your iPad to follow along and complete the course.

Do I need any special Procreate brushes to create these projects?

I recommend using my custom monoweight Procreate brush (included for free with your enrollment) for all of the projects, which is exactly what you’ll see me using. For lettering, the free flat marker brush (included for free with your enrollment) is also a great option. All other brushes used within the course are default brushes you’ll already have access to in Procreate to keep the focus on learning the program.
