🟩 Level 1

Level 1 is an easy and fun way for total beginners to get introduced to drawing software and start developing their digital art techniques. If you’ve casually dabbled in digital art before, this class is a great way to explore more techniques.


You’ll build your digital drawing skills step by step and practice art fundamentals using the Medibang drawing app (or an app of your choice if you're already familiar). Project examples:


  • Basic-intermediate digital art tools and functions

  • Choosing colours and applying them naturally

  • How to use and organize layers

  • Digital art terminology and file types

  • Blending and realistic lighting effects

  • Clean up tips for smoother lineart


If you start a class and feel like it is too challenging or not challenging enough, we will transfer you to another level and waive any admin fees.

🟨 Level 2

Level 2 is for advanced students who want to advance their digital art skills and create professional-level art.


You'll practice digital tools and shortcuts while working on advanced projects such as character design, comics, background art and illustration! Project examples:


  • Character design

  • Background art

  • Digital illustration (ie. comics)

  • Realistic digital painting techniques

  • Shading, lighting, and digital textures

  • Drawing stylized figures and portraits


If you start a class and feel like it is too challenging or not challenging enough, we will transfer you to another level and waive any admin fees.
