About This Course

This quick and easy course will help you make original, custom digital paintings and illustrations using the free program Gimp, or any similar program, in just a matter of minutes that look professional and can be used online, in videos and animations, or for print purposes such as on a poster, letterhead, even a T-shirt or other products.

This course was made for both adults and younger people from (ages 10 and up), especially beginners, technophobes, people who don’t think they can draw, and those who want to rediscover their creativity and artistic sides that we all have.

Stop paying others to make designs for you and develop skills that can help you start making money creating professional-looking images for others. You can also use these simple techniques to make unique images and illustrations as free gifts for friends and family.   

You also don’t need to know how to draw. There are actually a huge number of graphic designers who cannot draw. But, they make up for it by using techniques like the ones in this course and naturally learning more about layout design, composition, color, typography, and other fundamentals of visual literacy.

This course can be taken on a computer, a tablet, or even a phone using the free program Gimp or similar image editing apps and programs. You do not need a stylus pen or any special gadgets, expensive software, or equipment to follow along.

This is not an in-depth Gimp course. A selection of tools and techniques are discussed in depth for creating digital paintings but this course doesn’t cover every feature available in Gimp. It’s for beginners who want to learn the most essential tools and tricks for making beautiful designs ASAP.

New  bonus lectures and resources will continue to be added.


  • Bring an open mind, a willingness to learn new tricks, and a copy of the free program, Gimp but you can also use any imaging program or app that allows you to use layers such as Procreate, Photoshop, Illustrator, Sketch, Sketchbook, etc.
  • You can take this course on a computer, a tablet, or a phone. 
  • You can draw in this course using a mouse, trackpad, or stylus pen.
