About your instructor:
Hi, my name is Nicole and I’ve been practicing and teaching calligraphy and lettering on the iPad for four years now. Thousands have gone through my starter series training and I’ve loved seeing the beautiful work they produce as a result!
This brand new 2020 live workshop will help aspiring calligraphy artists get started and understand what they need to move forward and practice after the session is complete.
I can’t wait to see you in the class!
This is a great course. I’m a total beginner with Procreate and calligraphy. The instructions were very easy to follow thank you.

“As someone who had never tried calligraphy before- I am really happy that I found Nicole’s iPad Calligraphy modules to get me started. I was able to learn everything at my own pace and could pick it up or put it down whenever I wanted to. Going through the lessons on Procreate meant that I could practice as much as I wanted thanks to the practice sheets.
What I appreciate most is that there is always more to learn. After I had finished learning the basics of the strokes and lowercase letters, there were lessons that covered uppercase letters, and ultimately full words. The breakdown of the skills into manageable parts made learning calligraphy easier than I thought and helped me retain what I had learned. Now, I can pick up my iPad and Pencil and write confidently even if I had taken a week or maybe even a month off.”
