Have you ever been curious about digital painting and drawing? In this class, you will get a jump start on how to use the app, Infinite Painter, with time to explore its rich features. Infinite Painter is a great app for beginners and professionals alike. We will explore the app together, although you are also welcome to use your preferred drawing app, such as Procreate, if you wish. We will get inspiration from a variety of artists, using their sculptures as our guide to understanding spatial relationships and color. Through painting and drawing together online, you will gain more experience and confidence with the digital medium. The class is for anyone with any experience level, from beginner on up, or join us if you simply want continued guidance in your digital art process.

For this online class, you will need a device such as an iPad or Android Tablet (You can use your smartphone but this is less ideal). You will need a drawing stylus such as an apple pencil, etc. Download Infinite Painter for $9.99 in the app store (available for Android and Apple users).
