Learn how to combine your creative imagination and the creative capabilities of iPad Pro to make awesome art. Use your artworks and or photographs to create new images, drawings, family portraits, cards, or a combination collage. It is recommended that students of all competencies have a basic plan for the class by choosing suitable sized paper and then make a mock up of your design idea, e.g. if making a card is it folded A4 or B5, four sides or two. The draft should also include any hand written text, drawings and allow space for any images you want to use. Scaling the project is important and will assist when selecting set up options in the Apps.

This class will be delivered online via the online platform Zoom.
