YouthSpark Camp: Create Digital Art with Fresh Paint
Needs a date and time

Needs a location

In this free hands-on 2 hour camp, students 8–14 will learn to create and share their own digital art with the Fresh Paint app for Windows 10. They’ll explore the basics of Fresh Paint, using lifelike oil and watercolors, pastels, and more to craft their own creations. They’ll also get a sneak peek of advanced digital art skills like mixing paint and layering media. Activities will focus on learning through experience and peer-to-peer learning, and themes may be based on upcoming seasons and special events.
At the end of the camp, participants will:
Be familiar with the creative possibilities of digital drawing and painting
Have experience with the Fresh Paint layout and tools
Create original artwork and share it with peers
Learn how to share their art with the swipe of a finger
