The beginning school year brought yet another new class that I was to teach and better yet to learn. It is pretty fun to learn something new, particularly technology. This semester I am teaching Digital Art. My district really went all out for my class, purchasing Bamboo tablets, Coral Painter 12 and Photoshop. I really was thrilled! The students will have all the tools to create amazing digital art.
As always with technology there are issues with computers not turning on, printer problems etc..... But now everything is working wonderfully. I am very excited with the pieces that have been created. It has taken time for the students to get use to drawing on a tablet, it is a completely different feel. The first assignment was just drawing with line, hatching and cross hatching. The two pieces posted with this writing are line drawings with monochromatic color. I am thrilled these pieces.
