Learn Krita 5.0 With Simple Exercises - Digital Art Basics


Welcome to the Krita 5.0 basics course!

If you want to get into digital art but don’t know where to start, then you’ve come to the right place!

Krita is a completely free image manipulation software that comes with lots of tools and functions to edit images and create digital paintings. So it’s the perfect fit for anyone who wants to get started with digital art but doesn’t want to commit to a paid-for software like Photoshop.

Krita is pretty simple and beginner-friendly at it’s core, but it’s still tricky to navigate it and find out what all it’s tools do when you open it up for the first time…

I’ve created this full course on Krita’s basics to help you with exactly that.

I will teach you how to navigate Krita, how to draw and create shapes, how to use layers and selections, how to apply filters and generally all the essentials that you absolutely need when you use the software.

This is not a course where I explain the in’s and out’s of each tool for 10 minutes and spam nerdy knowledge of all the unnecessary extra-options hidden deep inside the program that nobody uses anyway and you’ll have forgotten by the time the course ends.


Here I want to introduce you only to the imortant things and precisely and efficiently explain to you how Krita generally works and what you can do with it.

In my opinion, the best way to truly learn something is to do it.

So I’ve prepared simple exercises that will get you familiar with Krita and help you get as comfortable with this software, as it gets!

Have fun with the course!
