If you are an artist who has wondered about the creative possibilities of painting and drawing using your iPad, this workshop is for you.

This is a beginning class for artists to explore the exciting new world of painting and drawing digitally on an iPad. Join digital artist,  Kathryn Delany in exploring all the aspects of this new digital art medium.

We will explore how to create a canvas, how to create a digital paper for digital collage and how to use the digital painting tools as you would traditional ones. We will paint a still life (or anything that you wish to ) so you can experiment with the main components of the app Procreate, along with a couple of other apps for the digital collage work.

At the end of the day we will print out a copy of your artwork created in class. We will recreate a still life using pears similar to this image here.
