Does your child love to draw or paint? Are they interested in exploring digital painting? In Digital Painting For Kids, students will use the free digital software KRITA to create digital paintings based on famous works of art. These classes will focus on drawing and painting digitally. By the end of the course, students will learn about several famous artists and artworks throughout art history and gain confidence creating digital art, while using digital art tools, and exploring the principles and elements of art and design via a digital platform.
