Bryan Niven is an award-winning artist and photographer, whose creativity and skill set spans multiple areas of art and motivation. He has taught thousands of students over the years, in classroom settings and in travel workshops, in places like Arches National Park, and New York City. Although Mr. Niven has taught advanced art and photography to all ages, he loves teaching art to children, because he loves how honest and creative they are. Mr. Niven has also been asked to share his art on various occasions, by companies such as Apple and Adobe for purposes of motivating young and old alike.
2 files available upon enrollmentStudents MUST have Procreate downloaded prior to class. This class can be done on either iPad or iPhone, and Mr. Niven recommends using a stylus for added control. Apple Pencil is BY FAR the best stylus for iPad, but not needed for this class. Two other brands of stylus Mr. Niven recommends are Wacom (Bamboo Fineline or Sketch, both of which support pressure sensitivity on iPad and iPhone), and also Adonit, which are great for precise control, and also have several styli that support pressure. PLEASE, Mr. Niven realizes the Apple Pencil is expensive, BUT some of the pressure-sensitive, 3rd party styli can be very close in price, and are inferior, so he recommends Apple Pencil if the cost is close enough for you to justify. For more information on software and hardware, including information about procreate, and the various styli, as well as compatibility, and recommendations for various iPads, or iPhones that support Procreate, please consider enrolling in Mr. Niven’s Digital Art Orientation, for Students and Parents.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
- Procreate (iPad)
- Procreate Pocket (iPhone)
45 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
