How to Color in Procreate – Coloring Pages in Procreate
Did you know you can use Procreate like a coloring book? Even better — you can use some really cool digital art tricks to have even more fun than traditional coloring. Follow along with me and color one of my FREE coloring pages in this live Procreate tutorial. I’ll teach you tips and tricks for coloring, including how using Procreate features such as Layers and Alpha Lock can speed up coloring and create cool effects you’d never be able to do on paper!
I’ll be coloring my “Space Pets” coloring page using my free Kids Make Art! brush pack, so be sure to download them and have them loaded into Procreate before you start watching!

Free Procreate Coloring Pages
Week 2 of Kid’s Month is all about coloring pages! You can make your own (see below), or if you’d rather just color, you can download my FREE coloring pages for Procreate below! These are set up as Procreate files so you can color right on your iPad in Procreate. Try using my free “Kids Make Art!” brushes to color them in! There are also printable PDF versions if you’d like to color on paper instead.
The button above will download all of the coloring pages (Procreate and PDF versions) as a .zip file. Download pages individually below.
How to use the Coloring Pages in Procreate
Download the .Procreate files to your iPad. They will be saved to your Files app in the Downloads folder. Tap a file to import it into Procreate. Open the file, and you are ready to start coloring!
Open the layers panel (the icon with two squares in the upper right). You’ll see a layer called “Color Here” below the layer with the black line art, which is where you’ll do your coloring! You can use Color Drop to fill in the different spaces with color, or simply color them in by hand.
