Digital Art for Beginners - (focus on basic drawing skills)
Students in the course will learn the basics of drawing fundamentals, storyboarding and digital graphic design, with the aim of eventually working towards a number of Level One NCEA standards in Media Studies and English (maybe creating a visual text, or creating a design for a short film). The skills learned will also be beneficial to those students with an interest in completing some digital art standards later in their schooling.
You'll really want a device with a reasonable sized screen - I've watched people struggle with doing this on their phones, and it's... troubling. Try and source a cheap tablet or laptop from somewhere! We can provide the drawing tablets :)
Please note - this is not digital art for SDL, where you will just work on your own projects. If you're in this class, you'll be expected to engage in our learning activities (lots of little activities to increase your skills in digital art). If you have an existing digital art project in mind, please ask your LA about other options below.
Other options for students to engage in Digital Art:
*Beth does a more advanced class in the same block, for those aiming to complete some NCEA art standards digitally.
*Friday Hapori - Toi
*Friday Hapori - Takaro
*Or talk to your HBLA about an SDL art project!
