Course description

Painting on Your iPad

Learn to use your iPad or tablet as a powerful drawing tool to create paintings and sketches.

Be a 21st century artist using an app for your iPad or tablet. No paper. No paint. No waste. No mess. No waiting for paint to dry.
How do you decide which painting app to choose? How do you use it? Where do you find out what each tool does?

Before picking a painting app, take this online course. We've tried and tested various apps to give you the lowdown. We've also used every tool to give you instructions on what each icon stands for and what you can do with it.

You'll see the advantages of painting apps over traditional painting on paper.

The course also has 4 step-by-step landscape paintings for you to create. And then tells you how to share your artistic creations with family, friends and the world on social media.
By the end of the course, you'll have hands-on experience of everything you need to paint a beautiful scene with your tablet.

See the many things you can easily create as a digital artist.
