eLive Class - Digital Art
Our eLive class allows students to participate in workshops, as well as interact with classmates, and ask questions of the instructor--all virtually from the comfort of their own home.
This class requires a computer with access to an updated web browser.
Description: Students will be introduced to art and technology by using color, digital stamps, word art, and creating animated .GIFS. Students will leave with an understanding of digital design tools as a powerful platform for a wide variety of visual goals.
This class requires any computer with a web browser (Mac, PC, or Chromebook). Tablets and smart phones will not be adequate.
Digital Dragon will be offering your class through an online platform called Zoom. There are a few things you will need to do before participating in class.
Task 1: Visit the following link--it should prompt you to download Zoom. https://zoom.us/support/download Once you’ve downloaded it, you’ll need to run and install the software.
Task 2: Please test your Zoom audio before class. See here for a how-to on that:https://support.zoom.us/hc/en-us/articles/201362283-Testing-Computer-or-Device-Audio
Task 3: Please navigate to: https://www.piskelapp.com/ and ensure that the graphics web app loads when you press the "Create Sprite" button towards the upper right corner. From the main page you can also sign-up for a Piskel account account (if you don’t have one already). Also navigate to https://pixlr.com/x/, hit Create New on the top left, and ensure that several image templates load.
While it’s not 100% necessary to have a Piskel or Pixlr account, we do highly recommend that you sign-up for one as it will allow you to save and work on projects in the future.
