by Rebel Stepz
This 4 week, digital painting course is a great introduction for anyone interested in creating abstract art using the free MS Paint program. Participants will have the option of exhibiting their digital pieces at Bendigo Bank in Carlton, Melbourne.
This fun and creative 4 week course will have everyone experimenting with virtual paint and photography in order to create digital art online.
MS Paint should already be on your computer if you are using Windows. Find out more here.
Week 1: Everyone will be guided through the basics of the MS Paint program. You'll be experimenting with how it works and creating a simple drawing using the programs features. This session will be focused on familiarising ourselves with MS Paint.
We will be asking you to take photographs (using a camera of your choice phone cameras are fine) in between this session and the next.
Week 2: Using the photographs you have taken in between sessions, you will be learning how to open them in MS Paint and paint over them using various shades of colour; Light, mid-range and dark. Everyone will be encouraged to develop their own style whilst grasping the concept of painting digitally.
Week 3: We'll be focusing on creating abstract self portraits. Using a photo of yourself, you'll be focusing on using the tools and program features to produce a colourful portrait of yourself. This session will certainly encourage you to unleash your creative side and play around with the program to create a specific style of art.
Week 4: The final week will be a review and a chance to use your knowledge to work through some fun and creative tasks and exercises set by your facilitators. It will be a chance to go over anything you're finding difficult and to perfect your piece should you choose to exhibit it at Bendigo Bank, Carlton.
This course is a great way to discover art, painting and drawing using technology and is ideal for beginners. Fun!
