🔎 Virtual Class Details

Have you casually dabbled in digital art, but now you’re ready to explore more techniques? This virtual art class will guide you through all of the steps you need to create art digitally! Learn how to make digital art from professional artists in small online classes and get personalised guidance on your artwork!

Digital Art class demos are done live on MediBang Paint Pro, a free digital painting app we recommend for beginners. Check out our MediBang Video Tutorial to see what it can do. You may also use any app of your choice – as long as you’re familiar with the tools and functions like layers, blending modes, and how to transform.

🤓 What to Expect in Class

This online digital art class is a fun way to explore art and technology in guided and easy step by step lessons. While this digital art class is designed for youth, many adults have enjoyed it too!

Most digital art projects will be completed in the hour-and-a-half long class, but some assignments may take two or more weeks. Students are encouraged to share their progress and screen share during class for personalised feedback, or submit to Google Classroom for written feedback from their instructor if they need additional time to finish their artwork after the live class.

Digital Art Foundations is a live online art class that is weekly and ongoing throughout the year (4 class terms per year – Fall, Winter, Spring, Summer). Consistent practice is key to growth and  improvement, so most of our students enrol for a full term and continue learning with us for years. Our projects rarely repeat (we only revamp fast favourites), so you can start anytime!

📚 Curriculum / Learning Goals

Digital Art Foundations is designed to complement Canadian school curriculum guidelines for grades 4+, but it’s a great online art enrichment program for artists of all ages!

Our class curriculum is structured and thoughtfully planned every term using our unique teaching method and the latest art trends and design innovations.

Students will focus on building their digital art skills and will take away drawing techniques that can be used in any medium!

Digital Art Foundations projects may include:

  • Learning intermediate digital tools and functions

  • How to paint different textures digitally

  • Clean up tips for smoother lineart

  • Choosing colours and how to apply them naturally

  • How to blend and create realistic lighting effects
