  • Digital Arts & Photography

Concept artists who can design and paint environments and backgrounds are frequently in demand within the entertainment industry.  In this 4 session introductory workshop (12 hours), students will learn the steps of creating a digital environment. Through a combination of demonstration and hands-on learning, students will move from initial concept to final composition exploring reference gathering, perspective construction, photo-merging and digital painting.

Less experienced students will have an opportunity to use a master copy to create a digital environment.  

Emphasis will be placed on using photo editing and digital painting to facilitate the creative process. Students will consider treatment of mood, architectural setting, environment storytelling, light and materials -- all created through digital drawing, painting and collage.

This is a 4 week (12 hours) SPRING SUNDAY workshop
