An ongoing class that
kids can join at any time throughout the year

A brand new weekly class where kids can learn how to ‘paint’ characters and backgrounds digitally.

We’ll teach students how to bring a traditional drawing into a program called KRITA, how to lay down flat colours, how to add shadings, and also how to paint background art.

Students don’t need any previous experience with a digital drawing program. We will teach them everything from scratch, so absolute beginners may join as well as those who have played with programs like FireAlpaca, SAI, or IbisPaint.

New students are accepted any time throughout the year.
