VECTOR ART SKILLS ARE BUILT ON THE FOUR FOUNDATIONS
All artists are at different levels and have different goals, Vector Maestros sessions support the artist in the areas of art, design and the art biz. Each session is designed to focus only on what the artist wishes to learn at the time of the session.
The list below provide insight into the many areas we cover in our sessions.
Vector training takes place across different sketching and drawing sessions. Each session is focused on discovering a particular talent and then developing that skill to the next level.
Hand control and lots of practice to build the natural hand movement of art.
Sketch to Vector Process
Start with a sketch, an idea, a rough drawing and bring it into Adobe Illustrator by scanning, taking a picture with mobile phone or start with a digital sketch. The process is always the same. Start with a rough idea of what we want and then follow the steps to get into Adobe Illustrator.
Adobe Illustrator Sessions
Adobe Illustrator is our go-to app, on iPad or desktop, as the tools have matured and made digital art a simple process. Anchor points and bezier lines can get tedious, but that is the joy of vector art!
At this point we venture into other vector apps available on android, iOS, MacOs, Windows and Mobile! We must become familiar with the vector apps in different platforms.
Adobe Fresco + Vector Brushes
When you want to focus on drawing vectors instead of anchor points and the pen tool, then it is time to break out the magic of Adobe Fresco and the vector brushes. The workflow is made significantly smoother with the help of the Creative Cloud Docs.
Sketch Lab Sessions
Lots of sketching to develop hand control that produces the art strokes to build your sketch, and hand control that allows you to be precise with your vector paths. Natural hand movements to create art is constantly practiced with a mouse, a stylus and drawing pen.
One on One Sessions
There will be opportunities for group sessions, meetups and art skill development by working around others. One of the best ways to grow is by immersing yourself in the creative energy of a group of artists.
Gesture Drawing Sessions
Practice practice practice. Homework is filled with practice so we can move on to the next step
