Description

This class will teach you how to create a digital art printable using free design tools.

You would sell things like this on Etsy or other online marketplaces where digital art is sold.
You won't need any previous skills to participate (but you will need a working laptop/desktop computer & an internet connection). I made this class for YOU, the total beginner who has no idea where to start!

I created the class I wanted as a total beginner but couldn't find. I WAS you - and now that I've learned how to do this, it's my job (and privilege) to share the knowledge.

You will learn how to:

  • Use free (or close to free) tools to create your work.

  • Create a simple digital art design using free vector images and fonts.

  • Change sizes & image resolution to meet standards for high-quality print options (300 DPI/dot per inch).

  • Create mockups & watermarks for your designs using free tools & templates.

  • Find graphics & fonts to use for your designs.

And, you'll get a short, motivating pep talk telling you why it's SO cool to learn new skills & take action in the face of your fears by doing something new & creative!

When you finish the class, you will have created your first piece of printable art.

Woohoo!

You will use this information to duplicate the process over and over again as you broaden your tools and skills.

This class will take you from complete newbie to action taker...

From pondering to accomplished...

From "I wish I could" to "I DID!"

Who this course is for:
  • Beginners who want to learn basic design skills to create art printables

While getpaint dot net is an excellent tool, it was brought to my attention that Mac users can't download the program.

I'm showing you a different, free website you can use to convert your image to 300 DPI. No signups, no downloads and it's free & easy to use on both a Mac & PC.
