I wanted to do a post all about digital art documentaries that could be shown in the classroom, but it turns out that there really aren’t any good ones out there yet! Maybe that’s something that I could look into one day…
It's the end of the year, you've got projects finishing up, and it's not quite time for finals yet. What can you do to fill a class or two while you wait to walk out those front doors and shout your favorite s word? …Summer! (Or your other favorite s word, if you feel so inclined. :-)
The year is rounding down! The end is in sight and you can smell the summer air wafting through your classroom windows…or maybe you just have to imagine that you can smell it because the windows in your room don’t actually open for student safety…
Digital Art. The website is called Digital Art Teacher, but have you ever noticed that we don’t actually have an art curriculum focused on digital art?
Most of my blog posts are geared towards students, but this one is just for all my art teacher homies! ;) Today I want to talk to you about something that may or may not be a touchy subject for you: how to ask for help. Specifically, how to ask for help from your principal…yikes!
For the past 14 weeks, we discussed and learned so much more about the 7 elements of design. We also went through numerous tutorials for all of these elements to have clearer and better understanding how each of the elements affect artworks.
This week ends our short illustrator projects focusing on the elements. And we are finishing up with space! It is important to understand space in digital art, especially if you plan to make an artwork that has depth! Below are a couple digital art lessons that will help you in this endeavor!
SPACE…the final frontier…Ok, so that’s not the kind of space that we’re talking about, but it is OUR final element to explore and there is soooo much to explore, so let’s dive in! (Or perhaps spacesuit up…)
You know that since we are talking about form, we’ll be diving into some 3D effects in this post! As we learn how to do digital art with form here we’ll not only explore the 3D effects, but also learn how to use gradients in illustrator to make some simple forms.
