I have been teaching at Cypress College since 1509 AD that is over 500 years. Albrect Durer was a close friend as was Michelangelo. In fact my first field trip with my intro to design class was a visit to the Sistine Chapel while Michelangelo was still working on it. Fast forward to 1984 the year I got my first computer in which I immediately started using in my life drawing classes. Not much has changed with regards to computing since the mid 80’s. Computers have gotten faster, monitors are larger, and software has gotten more complicated. Design, drawing and painting skills are still the most important asset a digital artist can have.
