This is a great opportunity to introduce you to digital drawing and painting on your iPad or iPhone. The day will begin with a series of digital experiences, introducing you to the simple and then more complex elements of the app. We will intersperse working on your iPad or iPhone with experiments of a more practical nature, enabling you to consider how digital work may also aid and support your own drawing, painting etc.
Please bring along the following items: a fully charged iPad or iPhone, a compatible stylus – optional, a sketch pad and pencil case, an apron, a good clear photo of a piece of 2D work that you are unsure of how to develop. All other materials and pieces of equipment will be provided.
