Intro to Digital Creating

A quick start guide to drawing, designing and making Art on your iPad

When I discovered the Apple Pencil, and the Ipad. It BLEW MY MIND. And this is after the 22 years I have been creating digitally with the Adobe Suite of Software.

The possibilities are ENDLESS. And yet, no overwhelm, please.

And I say no overwhelm because sometimes when tools present {too} many possibilities it can stop us in our creative paths, shut us down. We can't decide so we don't decide. We don't want that to happen!

Which is why I created my version of an Introduction to {Digital} Creating. I want to give you a quick start guide, with demonstrations, answers to your questions, tips to avoid the technical glitches and challenges that come with digital creating. And I want them all in one place. I put parentheses around Digital because in many ways this mini-course is not only to about getting started with digital creating, it is also an introduction to drawing and making art.

For beginners, I can't think of a better tool to start designing and drawing

For advanced artists I can't think of a better tool to expand skill set.

And for everyone! I can't think of a better tool to open the door to your creative muse.

Plus, you can take it everywhere! And entire art supply kit that fits in your purse.

In this mini-course you will learn:

What equipment you need to Create Digitally

How to Get Started with Drawing Apps

A brief overview of Marisa's top 4 Apps

How to choose the App for you

How to avoid frustrating technical glitches and challenges that can keep you from your creative time

I now know the unlimited creative possibilities we all have, and how fulfilling it is when we take the time to be creative. All you have to do is start, with digital creating!!

I welcome the opportunity to support you in making that time and exploring your creativity.
