In this on-going class, students will be inspired by a new, imaginative theme every week, make digital art with their choice of app, and socialize.

Class Experience

  • Students will practice using the art app of their choice as a creative tool.
As a teacher with a Masters in Art Education, I taught 6 sections of Computer Technology in Art Education to 2nd year college students. I also used to teach Computer Art 1, 2, and 3 in a public high school.
Materials Needed:

💡   It is easier for students to share what they are doing and get help if their digital art app or program is being used on the same device running Zoom. Please log into the Outschool classroom on the same device as your art app.

💡   I will be using Photopea.com and/or Sketchbook app to screenshare demonstrations.  Your learner is welcome to use any of the following digital art programs to create their masterpieces for this class:  Procreate, Adobe Photoshop, Photopea.com, Autodesk Sketchbook, Krita, ibisPaint, and PicsArt. Similar programs will also work, but message me if you have any questions.

🖼️ Wikipedia and Unsplash are great resources for copyright free photos. Students will need to download their own photos for their photo collages.

💻  Procreate is the most popular digital art tool right now, but it is only available for iPad. It’s great for digital drawing and has photo editing capabilities. Find it at https://procreate.art/ipad

💻  Adobe Photoshop is still the industry standard for photo editing and digital art. It is available for any device in a paid edition, but free and “lite” editions exist for mobile devices. Find it at https://www.adobe.com/products/photoshop or search your app store for "Photoshop."

💻  Photopea.com is free online software that works nearly exactly like Adobe Photoshop and is great for students using a laptop. Students who have not purchased and installed Photoshop on their computer may opt to use Photopea instead if they have a strong internet connection. Find it at https://www.photopea.com

💻  Sketchbook is a free app available for all devices: Windows, Android, tablets, iPad, iPhone. A pro paid version is also available. This app is great for drawing with digital layers and has the basic selection, cut, and paste tools necessary for making a photo collage. Find it at https://www.sketchbook.com/apps

💻  Krita is a free, open source software for all devices with photo editing capabilities but built for illustration. Find it at https://krita.org

💻  ibisPaint is an easy-to-use digital drawing tool and photo editing app available for Windows, MacOS, Android and iPad. Free and paid versions. Find it at https://ibispaint.com/about.jsp

💻  PicsArt is available in free or paid editions for all devices. I do not recommend this program, but it is a fully functional digital art and photo editing app. Find it at https://picsart.com/gold
