Using an iPad (or tablet) to Facilitate Artwork with Diane Murray


 An iPad and/or tablet can be a help in so many ways: tracing subjects for enlarging, experimenting with color choices, doing value sketches, making design choices. As work progresses, a photo taken of the painting allows for experiments with color and value. The free app Dropbox used on the tablet and home computer facilitates the transfer of drawings. The class will be held at Panera’s at the entrance to South Park so we have access to wi-fi. Wednesday, April  25, 12:00-4:00. Members $15, non-members $20. Class size will be limited to 8 people.
