Introduction to Digital Painting Course Beginning Soon!


Comics Experience is pleased to offer a new session of Introduction to Digital Painting, led by artist-instructor Scott Johnson! Enrollment is now open, with limited seats available.

This course, beginning July 14, 2016, introduces you to the principles and techniques of creating fully-rendered artwork with a pressure-sensitive tablet. No experience is necessary, but techniques covered will benefit beginning and accomplished artists alike!

We launched Introduction to Digital Painting for the very first time in 2014, with enthusiastic responses from instructor and students:

“I had the fantastic opportunity to take Scott Johnson’s Digital Painting through Comics Experience last year and was blown away with not only his extensive knowledge of digital painting and color theory, but also his ability to effectively pass on his knowledge in an online classroom environment. I am a professional instructional designer and teacher by day, and I was especially impressed with how Scott structured his class to facilitate learning. I had always know he was an amazingly talented digital painter, but it turns out he is also a fantastic instructor! I learned a lot from the class and have continued to use and enjoy the digital painting techniques I learned from Scott for personal projects and freelance work. Great class!”
