PRAA Making Art On an iPad: Introduction for Beginners with WB Eckert

May 22: 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Learn the basics of using the iPad to draw and paint digital art with excellent and affordable “Procreate” app.

Legitimizing the iPad as a tool for creating art, venerable artist and visual explorer David Hockney showed 33 of his 5 foot tall iPad paintings at the De Young Museum in San Francisco In 2013. Many artists today are embracing digital art for sketching and painting, for personal work as well as professional work, both painting and graphic art scenarios. This is an excellent tool for painters as well. It can be used for everyday sketching, compositional layouts, exploring changes to our paintings, and having our digital creations professionally printed very conveniently.

Using the exciting app that David Hockney used, Procreate, this beginner's introduction class will explore the program features, basic navigation, tools, basic actions, and methods of sketching and painting on the iPad; as well as how layers work, sizing your work, and sharing and printing. Students will work hands on exploring this exciting medium on their iPads*. $45 per student.

Mindfulness and Conscious Living with Carmen Rose

May 22: 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Consciously living is about waking up to the inner workings of our mental, emotional, and physical processes. We all have a basic human ability to be present, aware of where we are and what we’re doing at any given time. By using the tools and techniques found in mindfulness and meditation practices, we’re able to curb the instinctual behavior of reacting, and instead make the conscious choice of responding. We begin to see the bigger picture and not become overwhelmed by what’s going on around us. The goal of this class is to share proven and simple techniques to bring about conscious awareness to improve our quality of life as earthly beings.

Each featured artist represents a part of the 805 story and their artwork embodies the 805 lifestyle.
