About Mandy Ford @mandyfordart
Hi there! I'm Mandy Ford, an illustrator, pattern designer, and lettering artist living the small town life in Indiana with my husband and twin boys. I've been a maker since I was old enough to pick up a crayon, and have always had a love for color and design. I have a knack for finding beauty in the small things, a ridiculous amount of hope, a child-like fascination with life, and I'm in a serious relationship with my morning coffee.
Mandy starts with an in-depth overview of the Procreate app using an iPad. Then begin creating your own lettered art piece from start to finish. Each lesson features detailed written instruction, videos to follow along with, and homework assignments to practice your skills!
It'll take around four hours to watch all the videos and read the text, but be prepared to put in some extra practice time to learn the app and hone your skills.
This masterclass is self-paced. Take it anytime, anywhere, and on any device. You’ll receive long-term access to the content in this class, so return to the material whenever you need a boost of creative inspiration.
