“Iva is a wonderful teacher and really takes the time to explain all the little details. I’ve watched several of her classes and she is by far my favourite teacher for procreate. I always look forward to her courses, and even though I’ve been drawing for years, I always learn something new.”

Hey there!

I’m thrilled to invite you to my exciting online art class, where we’ll dive into the world of volume and shading through a fun project.

Are you ready to create a vibrant tropical fruit cocktail while mastering these essential techniques? If so, this class is perfect for you!

Why Should You Learn from Me?

A decade ago, I embarked on a journey to build my creative career, and since then, I’ve had the opportunity to work with amazing clients on incredible projects. This path has allowed me to explore the world, connect with diverse people, experience different cultures, and soak in the beauty of various locations. I truly believe that each and every one of us possesses infinite creative potential. That’s why I’ve made it my mission to share everything I know in the hopes of awakening your creative genius. My aim is to empower you to pick up a new hobby, express yourself artistically, and, if you’re ready, even turn it into a fulfilling lifestyle where you can spend more time doing what you love.

What Will You Learn?

In this class, our focus will be on the five volumes method—a fun and straightforward approach to learning how to shade and create the illusion of volume in your illustrations. To make the learning process enjoyable, we’ll be illustrating a fresh tropical fruit cocktail together. This project will not only teach you important techniques but also inspire you to create your own unique illustrations with a variety of subjects.

While I’ll be using Procreate in the class, feel free to use any other digital drawing software or traditional media that you’re comfortable with. Basic knowledge of Procreate is helpful but not necessary, as I’ll guide you through the process step by step.

So, without further ado, let’s dive into the world of art and embark on this exciting creative journey together! I can’t wait to see you in the class, where we’ll unlock the secrets of volume and shading while sipping on the refreshing energy of a tropical fruit cocktail.

See you in the class.
