Come learn how to create fun digital art on the iPad! We will use one of leading natural media apps to explore the fundamentals of digital media creation– including technical aspects such as the best resolution and file types to use for your projects, and how to use layers and texture brushes to achieve artistic effects. We’ll go through the process of sketching, coloring, and adding texture to create a set of images you can use in your social media posts, emails, and other digital applications. Then we’ll take our initial sketches into a graphic design program to learn how to vector trace them. Using vector tools, we’ll create clean, even lines for a coloring book page. You’ll leave the workshop with the skills to experiment with both raster and vector programs at home to create your own digital art for a variety of uses.
— understand the difference between raster and vector graphics, what applications each type of graphic is best for, what programs to use to create them, and the difference between various file formats
— adjust the dimensions and resolution of a raster canvas depending on what the image will be used for
— use a variety of digital brushes to create textures and dimension in hand-drawn raster graphics
— trace over an analog or raster sketch using the vector pen tool to create monoline images
— adjust the type of vector brush to achieve variable line effects
In this workshop, students will create two types of digital graphics. The first is a set of colorful, textured raster graphics for use as stickers or photo frames on social media. The second graphic will be a vector-based coloring page inspired by an initial sketch or existing artwork.
Students will learn how to export these images into different file formats for use in various digital and print applications, such as posting them on social media, embedding them in emails, creating designs to use with a cutting machine, and printing them on greeting cards.
