Digital Discoveries: Procreate Portraits Masterclass with Stephanie Hew

Express yourself with digital art in this masterclass led by local illustrator Stephanie Hew!

Mexican artist Frida Kahlo often painted herself with different striking expressions, plants, animals in bold, vibrant colors as a way to show how she was feeling. Using digital art, freely explore how changing the shape, size and colour of a drawing can immediately change the mood of an artwork.

Participants of all skill-levels are welcome and can expect to...

  • Learn how to use digital art app Procreate’s and apply its tools to illustrate
  • Understand how simple shapes can create varying facial features, expressions and symbols
  • Create a personalised digital portrait of themselves

This activity involves the use of an iPad and Apple Pencil with version 5.3.7 of the app Procreate. All equipment is provided but participants may bring their personal iPad with version 5.3.7 of Procreate, and/or Apple Pencil to use if desired.

This masterclass is offered as part of Frida Forever, ArtScience Museum’s season of celebrating the life and legacy of Mexican artist, Frida Kahlo.
