 Register for Workshops

Craft Tour 2014-35Two additional workshops are also offered during CDA’s Summer Session:  Introduction to the Electronic Canvas for Artists and Art Teachers.  First workshop starts on July 20, 2015 and the second on August 3, 2015.

Course synopsis:  These workshops are for anyone interested in leaning how to draw and paint using the iPad app “ArtRage” with iMac software “Adobe After Effects”.  Working on the iMac, participants will explore aesthetic possibilities only possible through the integration of new computer technologies to create single and multi-channel “motionpaintings” – that is, artwork that incorporates motion, sound, and video.

Two Epson Ultra ShortThrow Projectors will be available to the class.  For a demo, click here.

Morning from 9 am to 1 pm (with a break) is dedicated to instruction.  Afternoons you are free to work on your own or explore and enjoy the country setting and the Brattleboro area (see below for more information).

Green Ivy Quartet PM Each participant will have the use of an iMac with Wacom tablet loaded with ArtRage and Adobe After Effects.   Other software available includes Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Premiere, Adobe Flash, & Processing.  Seating is limited to 10 participants, so register early.

The studio is located at my home in West Brattleboro, Vermont.  You’ll have time to lounge around on the patio, enjoy a good picnic or relax around the reflecting pool or take walks and enjoy the activities that go on in and around our town in the summer.

Marlboro Music Festival Z Pearsons Hall IMG_0515These two workshops not only offer an opportunity to learn new artistic skills and techniques and meet new people, but an opportunity to enjoy Southern Vermont in the summer.  Our Brattleboro area is full of interesting events and destinations, such as local craft fairs and galleries, an outstanding Brattleboro Museum and Art Center, classical music at the Marlboro Music Summer Festival, or jazz at the Vermont Jazz Center, plus a host of local restaurants offering a variety of food all the way from diner cuisine to fancy fare.  There will be plenty of time to just relax – enjoy a walk in the country, or go swimming, or just daydream and do nothing at all!

About Michel MoyseMichel Moyse, artist, filmmaker and teacher, is Artistic Director and Co-Founder of the Center for Digital Art in Brattleboro, Vermont.  Michel has an extensive background in film and experimental art.  His multi-screen video artwork has been shown in the United States and abroad. Prior to his position as Artistic Director of CDA, Michel was Sound Editor in New York City for such directors as Woody Allen, Brian De Palma, Jonathan Demme, and Peter Yates.  Michel has a Masters in Art Education from New York University.  After working for many years with oils, canvas, plastic and glass, Michel’s work took a decisive turn towards what he now calls ‘motionpainting’ in the mid 1980s with the advent of computers and digital technologies.  The result is a series of digital artwork that explode the concept of traditional two-dimensional art through the addition of motion, sound and narrative elements.  Michel lives and works in Brattleboro, Vermont.
