About the Course

Join artist, teacher and maker, Liz Wellby at The Slipper Studio on the edge of the beautiful Peak District, for an introduction to digital drawing and painting and learn how to use Brushes XP on your iPad or iPhone.

Many of us use our iPads and iPhones on a daily basis without understanding the creative potential we have at our fingertips. There are a number of apps that can transform your devices into a powerful creative tool, enabling you to be creative pretty much anywhere, with just a few taps on the screen.

Brushes XP is well laid out and in a short space of time you will be confidently navigating around the app, exploring marks, colour and layers. There will be a number of stages and practical experiences, introducing you to the simple and then more complex elements of the app. Experiments of a more practical nature, will be interspersed with working on your chosen device, allowing you to consider how Brushes XP may support your own drawing, painting or printing.

Liz will host the workshop at her studio. The venue is beautifully presented, with handcrafted workbenches and a wood burner, with views down into the village.
