Does your child love to draw? Take drawing skills to the next level by integrating technology. We use Wacom Tablets and touch screen laptops for each student. Students are not paired up for this class so artists can have total control over their digital drawing creations. Working with a digital canvas and toolset also inspires unique art work while building muscle memory and hand eye coordination. Following are some features of the class:
Discovering the advantages of digital drawing and painting
Comparing the differences between traditional methods of art creation vs. digital compositions.
Wacom tablets and touch screen laptops for each student to practice their drawing skills
Understanding creative design terms such as pixilation, vector-based
Integrating elements of traditional into a digital art such as: Line, Shape, Form, Texture, Value, and Space.
Understanding positive and negative drawing in a digital workspace.
Researching how integrating layers come together to create multi-perspective scenes
