Digital Painting Workshop:
BEGINNERS DIGITAL PAINTING: An introduction to digital painting that also maintains traditional fine-art drawing skills. In addition to daily sketchbook prompts, the class will be guided step-by-step through a wide variety of digital projects based on different subjects, styles and techniques. The goal is for students to gain a better understanding of art software capabilities and tool settings so they can eventually create their own digital paintings by themselves.
ADVANCED DIGITAL PAINTING: Added by popular demand, this class is an extension of our 2019 Summer Digital Art Workshop!Experienced digital artists will learn professional concept design and advanced digital illustration techniques that stretch beyond the basics of digital painting. Students will accumulate industry tips and tricks that will elevate their artistic foundations to new heights while also challenging their creativity in a fun-yet-educational environment.
DIGITAL PAINTING FOR HOMESCHOOL STUDENTS: This specially-designed course for home-schooled students will start with a thorough introduction to the basics of digital painting and end with more advanced illustration techniques. The class will teach students how to apply traditional art elements and principles to a new set of digital tools, exercise individual creativity by exploring many different subjects, styles and techniques as well as maintain traditional fine-art drawing skills through a series of daily sketchbook prompts.
*Students must supply their own hardware (i.e. tablets, stylus pens, etc.) and bring all charging devices to every class. For best results, pressure-sensitive pens are highly recommended but not necessarily required. All students must use the Adobe Sketch app at first (free for download in your device's app store) but will later be allowed to use other digital painting software of their choice.
