New Skillshare Class | Design an Adult Coloring Book Page on Your iPad

The only thing more fun than coloring an intricate coloring book page, is designing your very own page to share with family, friends, or your online following.  If you’re like me, you think every coloring page would be better if it just had “a little more ______”. Us makers are annoyingly picky, thus we often want to create our own version of EVERYTHING.

In my newest Skillshare class, I’ll show you how create a coloring page from start to finish.  You’ll learn:

  • ways to fill in shapes to make them ideal for coloring.

  • how to add patterns and shapes that break up the flat image and create a fun space for coloring.

  • how to turn photographs into a drawing with intricate spaces for coloring.

I’ll show you every step of my process from sourcing images to filling in drawings with patterns and shapes.

We’ll create 3 different kids of coloring book pages so you can try out different styles and methods for creating spaces for coloring.

You can give the designs you create to friends and family for coloring, or you could offer them as downloads on your website or online store!
