About This Class

Get inspired with celebrated visual artist Shantell Martin! This short class goes behind-the-scenes in her NYC studio to share the ways digital drawing can push your creativity.

Watch as she plays with layers, subtraction, shapes, and more — then create drawings of your own. Throughout the class, Shantell uses her favorite drawing app, Paper by FiftyThree, but you're welcome to use any drawing app you'd like.

Digital tools and apps can spark inspiration for projects both in the digital world and beyond. Artists, creators, makers, and everyone looking to kickstart their creativity will love this creative workout. No experience needed — just grab your pens and let it happen!

FiftyThree builds mobile creation tools that help users to sketch, write, draw, outline, and color on the iPad.

Great class. Lots of fun!
This was a fun class. It showed me how to utilize and app I had give up on at least twice before. Since watching the class I have been using the app in the morning to create loose portraits to help get me into a more creative space. Thank you.

SHANTELL MARTIN

Visual Artist

The work of Shantell Martin is a meditation of lines; a language of characters, creatures and messages that invite her viewers to share a role in her creative process. Part autobiographical, and part dreamlike whimsy, Martin has created her own world that bridges fine art, commercial and the everyday experience -- conversations, objects and places.
