About the Artist
Raheem Nelson is a well know digital artist who has exhibited widely throughout the United States. He is also a workshop leader for Apple in New York City.
Digital Painting meets Traditional Technique Workshop
Raheem teaches the art of digital painting to small groups using a Brushes 3 app on iPads. In his sessions, students will learn to visualize and incorporate their ideas regarding shape, color, texture, and even story-line concept in a contemporary format. The Brushes 3 wand is a digital tool that utilizes traditional brush technique in painting. Raheem works in sequential learning residency programs, but can also do workshop settings. It is best if all participants had access to an iPad.
The purpose of the workshop/class will be to create “Remix” portraits. A Remix portrait is a self-portrait that pays homage to a person’s influences.
Students will brainstorm and think of people that influence them and why? Teachers, Friends and Family can all be choices. Short writing prompts will go hand in hand with the visual aspect. Students will learn basic drawing skills combined with iPad painting.
