Join Laurie for a fun digital Zoom class as she shares her screen with you. Learn how to draw on your iPad using a stylus pen and Autodesk Sketchbook, a free drawing app. Laurie will show you how to draw people and animals starting from simple shapes, in multiple layers, building from the inside out. Laurie has years of experience designing character proposals for animation, paper products, apps, magazines, advertising and publishing. Great for creating your own cards and social media posts. No experience necessary.
Participants must supply their own iPad, and download the free Sketchbook app from iTunes. We recommended getting the stylus pen from a dollar store like Dollarama; but you can also purchase them from Staples or almost anywhere that sells technical/ office supplies.
