Would you like a chance to get digital instruction that can be applied to your classroom?
This workshop will provide digital art teachers with direct, contemporary practices and instruction that can be applied in the classroom with students in three specific areas; 3D Modeling (Maya), Sketchbook to Digital Art- Illustrator and After Effects & Motion Design.
3D Modeling (Maya)
Robots, coffee makers and space ships… 3D models are everywhere! From movies and video games to the giant screens of your favorite team. In this session we will go over the basics of using an industry standard Autodesk’s Maya. This program is used to create models and animated 3d objects and scenes and this session will get your hands on it and exposed to a cornerstone of creating digital art.
Sketchbook to Digital Art- Illustrator
Doodling and sketching are a natural outlet for creative energy. But have you ever wanted to take a sketch or doodle from paper to pixels? Learn how to use Adobe’s suite of free tools to take your work digital. As part of this session we will also go over free digital tools like Sketchbook that allow you to use your tablet to sketch and draw in an organic manner using technology.
After Effects & Motion Design
Design in motion. Motion graphics are everywhere, titles from our favorite TV shows, movies, the spinning logo during a football game or an art piece putting a poem into motion. Learn the basics of using After Effects and what this program can be used to create. Think of all of the imaging power of Photoshop with the added power of time and space. That is After Effects… come learn how to take your design concepts to new areas using motion and time.
