"Would you believe me if I told you I did these paintings on my own? It's so easy once someone shows you how to do it step by step. And the best part is you just follow along. You learn how to do it on your own and I just love that."

Nikki, USA

"I only use my iPad to play stupid games that do nothing for me but waste my time. Since I started with Freya's Procreate Masterclass, I haven't even opened any of the games because I've been drawing non-stop. I am so proud I never knew I could actually do paintings like this on my own."

Lauren, USA

"I never thought it would awaken the artist in me at 59 years old. - As soon as I started, I was hooked. It's not hard. The narration is slow and calm, and you learn every step of the way in a manner that really makes you understand the digital jumbo mumbo."

Susan, USA

"One night I was video chatting with my sister in Colorado and she told me about this online course that teaches you to draw on an iPad. She showed me her paintings. Knowing my sister isn't really much of an artist, well, I was blown away. I decided to enroll in the class as well and it was one of the best decisions I made."

Gary, USA

"Here is my apple that I learned to paint in Freya's Procreate masterclass. I really love these classes because Freya shows step by step how to do the details, how to manage the layers and brushes, and I understood better the Procreate tools."

Lecture_Image
Isabel, Brazil

"I personally think that Freya's course is very comprehensive, I feel that Freya's course is very easy to follow. I love that there is that therapeutic-ness that comes from drawing line after line, you know? And funny enough, it actually awaken my love for digital art again"

Lecture_Image
Alyshia, Malaysia

"My family bought me an iPad and a ticket for the Procreate Masterclass because they know how much I've wanted to learn how to draw all my life. And believe me, if I could learn to draw digital paintings like these at 53, anyone can"

Lecture_Image
Ah Lam, Singapore

"I thought the lesson was really easy to follow along with and to understand, and I learned some great tips and tricks about different brushes to use and clipping masks, which I didn't know how to do that before. And layering and color. I think it's a great lesson for beginners and people who have a little more experience in Procreate also."

Lecture_Image
Rachelle, USA

"I never knew how much fun you can have with just an iPad, an Apple Pencil and a course. I learned digital illustration at 61 years old and now I can't stop doing it. I found a new passion. I find new friends. And now I can't wait to wake up each day and do some digital painting. I love it!!"

Lecture_Image
Norma, USA

"She really goes into in-depth about explaining the different techniques and the options and how to just be a bit more aware of what you're doing and how different things like the light, the textures and the reflections and the shadows, the highlights, all that stuff. Just really helpful."

Get hand-picked knowledge and skills directly from an artist with almost 20 years of experience 🌈

Over nearly two decades, from my early days as a struggling artist to teaching over 40,000 students globally and collaborating with major brands, I've faced my fair share of challenges and triumphs. Every hurdle I faced taught me something new, blessing me with the ability to tackle any art challenge.

That’s why, I was really excited to take on this course because I knew it would be a big challenge. I've done pet portrait commissions in the past, but teaching it is a whole different thing. Figuring out easy ways to capture all the little details and colors for lifelike pet portraits was quite the journey!

“Filled with a bunch of “insider” knowledge, this course will sky-rocket your digital painting skills. It doesn’t matter if you’re a complete beginner with no experience in drawing.”

I decided to get some feedback and invited some artist friends of all skill levels to try out this course. And guess what? They all thumbs-upped it! They found it straightforward and engaging enough to stick with it, which was exactly my what I was going for!

All theory and no drawing makes you … well, not a good illustrator 😬

Practice makes perfect

Over the past 20+ years, I've repeatedly seen just how true it is that "practice makes perfect." Imagine learning to swim … in your living room. Once you hit the water, you’d probably drown within minutes.

All the tools just a few clicks away

Brushes get worn-out and watercolors don’t come in endless supplies. So every once in a while, you have to splurge out another couple $100 just to be able to paint again. In Procreate, everything is much more affordable and always just a few clicks away.

Build a strong portfolio

I added 5 practical exercises throughout the course that require you to apply all the skills you've learned up to that point. And hey, besides the 5 opportunities to hone your skills, you also get 5 pieces of your own original artwork, which you can showcase in your portfolio before even starting your digital painting adventure.

Tap into the pet portrait market🐕

Pets are family, and the demand for personalized pet portraits is ever-growing. This course not only adds to your artistic skills but also opens doors to new opportunities.

People rarely hesitate to spend on two things they cherish: their children and their pets. By mastering pet portraits, you can not only earn from your passion, but you also get to bring smiles to people’s faces.

And let's face it, there's something incredibly fulfilling about earning from something that brings joy to your clients, all while doing something you love!

Plus, think of the fun collaborations with pet shops, vet clinics, or even pet events! Your art could be the star of the show, connecting you with a community of pet lovers who truly value your work.

Still considering other options? 🤔

That’s ok. There are lots of ways you can learn to create art.


Price 💸 Convenience 👌 Time Investment ⏰ Guarantee 🔒
Youtube Free!
(Usually… You just have to watch the ads they show you.)

Ready when you are, but no clear curriculum to follow. Unlimited. There are so many different people to follow and videos to watch - you could spend the rest of your life watching videos and still not know what to do next. None.
Art School $$$$$
Anywhere from $15,000 to $60,000+ every YEAR.
Somewhat convenient.
All of your classes will be on one campus… You just have to drive there and attend class… every day.
2 to 8 years, depending upon your degree program and chosen path. None.
Local Art Classes from $ to $$$
Somewhat convenient.
Classes will be in your local area, but there’s no promise that you’ll be able to find classes or instructors that fit your artistic goals.
Unknown. Depends on what classes are available and if you can fit them into your schedule. None.
Skillshare It’s hard to find this information on their website, but Skillshare is $36 a month - every month. Convenient. Courses are available on demand… but you do have to figure out your own curriculum and which teachers are best for your needs. Unlimited. Just like with YouTube, there are so many different offerings - you’re likely to spend hours upon hours trying to find the right options for you. “Payments are nonrefundable and there are no refunds or credits for partially used periods.”
Trial & Error The sky’s the limit! Depending on how much you want to spend on supplies, you could save a little… or you might end up spending an absolute fortune.
Somewhat convenient. It’s all at your own pace - but there’s also no outside help provided. Unlimited. Just like with YouTube, there are so many different offerings - you’re likely to spend hours upon hours trying to find the right options for you. None.
