What you'll learn in this drawing class:

This is a foundation class that explores the basics of digital painting using the iPad with Stylus. Each class will begin with a warm-up sketch using outline interface, brushes, layers, color picker & preferences for 5, 15, 60-minute sketches. We will work online: mechanical drawing, brush dynamics, the importance of light & surfaces, rendering techniques & painting from real life. We will also explore the anatomy of color, line volume, space & a variety of textures for example- layering. About halfway through this course, we will work on figure drawing with charcoal brushes, doodles & learn professional tips to employ accuracy, along with thumbnailing & bashing techniques.

As we complete these exercises each student will work on their own project to demonstrate all the topics assessed throughout the term. Students will be given the opportunity to learn digital skills for the Adobe Creative Suite (primarily: Photoshop, Premiere Pro and Animate). This can include an in-depth breakdown of Photoshop, Graphic Design theory, Video Editing Skills, and Animation Techniques. In this course, you will be given the skills to record, edit and add basic SFX to your own videos, as well as create finished images for publishing on social media, Instagram & YouTube.

Previous drawing experience is helpful for this course but not essential. Beginners are welcome.

Materials: For this course, you will need your own iPad ( preferably iPad pro) & Laptop, along with a design app installed: art Studio or Art Studio Pro, & an Apple pencil. (iPad is fine for sketching/drawing/painting but a Laptop is required for Adobe Creative cloud, Graphic Design, and video editing)
