iPad Calligraphy

By Melissa Esplin

Starting Date : 06 May 2022

Fees : HK$ 1,000 or US$ 130

Workshop Description

Streamline your workflow and learn how to mock-up ideas and digitize your calligraphy with the iPad! In this beginner digitization class, we'll focus primarily on the Procreate App, its features and how it functions with the Apple Pencil to create realistic pointed-pen calligraphy! As time allows we will dive into creating colorful effects and how to simply vectorize your work for quick turnaround times. We will start with the essentials of raster/bitmap digital file creation. If time allows, we will cover the basics of vectorizing artwork. 


We will be working exclusively within the iPad platform. If you don't yet have an iPad and you want to take the leap, I highly recommend the 2020 10.9 iPad Air with the 2nd Gen Apple Pencil (it's about the same price as a used 2nd gen iPad Pro). It's a huge investment! If you're not sure if you want to make a purchase of this size just before class, come anyway! You'll learn a lot !
