ONSITE: Animating on Your iPad (A)

Students will learn several types of basic animation in Procreate for the iPad. This is a more specific look at the animation abilities of this program.  The basics of drawing are expected as a prerequisite. We will learn simple boil animation gifs, how to animate motion, and finally create a looping .gif.

Special Notes

  • This class is for those who already have an iPad. Students must have their own iPad, apple pencil, and download the most recent version of the Procreate app. This is not a class that will teach basics of drawing, but rather is a technical class for learning to animate on the app itself.
  • Classes are confirmed one week prior to the start date. In order to help us confirm classes, please register as early as possible.
  • Students must follow social distancing protocols and wear masks at all times. For more info visit This is an On-site course. On-site courses do not come with studio access outside of class time. Paid open studio access is available through our Studio Access Program: if interested please visit
