If you have wanted to try digital painting, this is the class for you. It’s like having a portable painting set up all on your iPad or iPhone. No mess, no fuss. We will begin with a photograph that you paint over with different tools and mediums. There are 7 brush sizes. Included in the app is oil paint, oil pastel sticks, colored pencil, crayons, marker, conte crayon, paint markers, charcoal, eraser, and a variety of pencils. Included are blending tools, like sponge, fabric, thinner, sandpaper and pastel blenders. The color palette includes 55 colors in different opacities and the ability to mix colors. A stylus is nice, but not required. Amazon has an inexpensive clear disc one made by Meko. You can choose from 27 papers and canvas to paint on. No experience needed. This class is best on an iPad for its size. Come with the ArtSetPro loaded. Purchase in the App Store $6.99, IOS (Apple) only, Sorry No Android, Galaxy etc.
