Turn your iPad into a canvas and allow your creativity to flow anywhere you go. That’s the idea behind Caroline Mustard’s unique after-school course at the Arrillaga Family Recreation Center in Menlo Park, sponsored by the City of Menlo Park.
Mustard, the education director for the Mobile Art Academy, was traditionally trained at the University of Brighton’s Faculty of Arts in Great Britain and has embraced the iPad as a different, exciting way to produce art. Examples of her work can be found on her tumbler page.
"I am really excited about doing this,” Mustard wrote in an e-mail. “I am passionate about the future of iPad art and I want parents to know it is available as, when they do, they are very excited about it.”
The class runs every Monday (except Nov. 11) between Sept. 9 and Dec. 9 between 4-5 p.m. Tuition ($175 for residents, $235 for non-residents) includes basic training in drawing, color and composition. The rest will be left to your imagination as you build a portfolio that can be used in multiple formats.
Mustard will help you navigate each of the major mobile art painting and animation apps for maximum creativity.
