Introduction to digital art with free apps as learning tool – ideas for aspiring artists and educators

Are you and aspiring digital artist? You would like to try digital painting, but is not sure where to start? Are you an art teacher who would like your students to learn or experiment drawing digitally, but don’t have the resources? I will tell you a story.

A couple of weeks ago, 3 other art teachers and I had a weekend workshop for kids and teens at the neighbor town. There we introduced the students to digital painting and drawing using a free app as learning tool. The result? An explosion of creativity and tons of fun doing art in a novel way. The students couldn’t literally stop doing artworks in the hours we had together. You want to know how that started?

Watch my YouTube Video, where I illustrate this story and show to you a sketch time-lapse done on Tayasui Sketches free App.
