Graphic Design, Digital Painting, Image Editing, and more
Graphic Design and Digital Art–which utilize tools and software such as Adobe InDesign, Photoshop, and Illustrator, for example–are essential elements in the media and marketing industries, yet their creative possibilities continue to compel and fascinate beyond those borders. Digital art and painting is commonly employed in the film and television industries, giving shape to movie posters, comic books, storyboards, concept art, and texture creation. Editing and manipulating images in Photoshop is vital to understanding ideas about filters, masking, layering, and stylizing; again, the ability to transform photographs or existing scenes and landscapes to tell specific stories has opened up a Pandora’s box of opportunities in entertainment. In short, one’s passion for art, technology, and exploring visual theories and methodologies are the only prerequisites to dive in.
At Empow Labs, our Graphic Design and Digital Art programs range from introductory, fundamental programs to hands-on, how-to lessons. Whether you’re new to digital design/art or an up-and-coming professional, we’re confident in providing you the instructional content necessary to broaden your skills and knowledge.
