Create your own digital masterpiece inspired by Hockney’s iPad drawings

​Beyond his iconic oil paintings and photographic collages, in more recent years, David Hockney has also become known as the world’s foremost iPad painter. Using the iPad drawings from his upcoming retrospective as a jumping off point, this five-week course will explore the possibilites of digital painting techniques through the use of online applications such as Procreate. Taking inspiration from the David Hockney exhibition, participants are given the tools to create their own digital masterpieces for the Tate site.

This course is led by Roz Hall, a UK based digital artist, specialising in portraiture created on consumer tablet and mobile devices. As an advocate for the Mobile Digital Art movement, his work has been exhibited internationally as well as being featured in publications such as the Financial Times and the Independent. In 2014 he was selected by Apple to produce a series of iPad portraits which were exhibited in every Apple store across the world, as part of their Start Something New campaign.
