ILL 400 Digital Painting with Corel Painter...HELLS YEAH

It is official, my digital painting class is a go. I will be teaching an illustration class at Syracuse University that focuses on digital painting. The class will be similar to that of an illustration class just with the assignments being done in Painter.

The class will meet Friday mornings starting this fall semester. I am quite excited about it and I can not wait to start teaching.

I also attached a copy of the poster I made to promote the class. It shows some of the process steps to my Zombie Cannon piece.

A Taste of Painter

As luck would have it I was recently asked to teach a Corel Painter workshop at Syracuse University. It will be on two consecutive Saturdays Oct 17th and 24th, from Noon -3:00 PM. As you can see by the poster I uploaded.

The workshop will consist of a tutorial of the program followed by a demo. The students will then practice the first day painting a still life or portrait to familiarize themselves with the program.

They will then have the next week to create a full finished piece, with time to work on it on the 24th. We will then finish up the day with a class critique.

I am really looking forward to this workshop. I think the students will create some great images. If possible, after the workshop I'll see about uploading some of my students work to share with everyone what they did.
