Digital Drawing & Watercolor in Architecture & Landscape Architecture

This 2-week program is designed for students who want to explore the fundamentals of digital drawing and digital watercolor. Emphasis will be on architecture and landscape architecture.

Students will learn to use Adobe Photoshop to create digital art in a computer and use Procreate and Adobe Fresco apps to draw and paint on an iPad or iPhone. Basic artistic and design concepts will be covered, such as perspective, composition, color theory, and value. This digital art program is project-based so that students will end the course with a collection of digital representations of what they have learned.

No experience needed. For high school students at all levels who are interested in architecture, landscape architecture, or fine art.
