Class Experience

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. 
Students MUST have Procreate downloaded from the App Store, on an iPad prior to class. At the time of this writing Procreate was listed at $9.99. This class can be done on either iPad or iPhone, thought the screen size can be a challenge on the iPhone. Mr. Niven recommends using a stylus that supports pressure sensitivity for best results, but is NOT required to complete the class. For best results with brushes, and added control, Mr. Niven HIGHLY recommends Apple Pencil, as it is BY FAR the best stylus for iPad. Two other brands of stylus Mr. Niven recommends are Wacom Bamboo Fineline or Sketch, and Adonit. Both brands support pressure sensitivity on iPad and iPhone. For more information on software and hardware, including information about Procreate, as well as compatibility, and recommendations for various iPads, or iPhones and styli 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:
No live meetings, and maybe some time outside of class.
This class requires the iPad app: Procreate. It is a one time download, (rather than a subscription), and no account is needed, (other than an Apple ID, to provide access to the Apple App. Store. Procreate is an extremely popular, world-wide image creation/editing app like Photoshop. The lessons are directly posted to the Outschool classroom, and/or YouTube, using hyperlinks for access.
