Sunday in the Park – L.A. Sketch Walk and Studio at MAX 2015

MAX_logo_teal-darkFree yourself from the confines of your desk, and discover a new way to jump start your creative thinking; push your ideas in new directions; and bring real world inspiration into your creative process. In this full-day lab, we’ll start in the heart of downtown Los Angeles in peaceful Maguire Gardens surrounded by L.A.’s most iconic architecture and local culture. Here, you’ll capture ideas with traditional pencil and paper, or digitally, using your smartphones and tablets to sketch, take photos, and use new Adobe mobile apps to capture color, shapes, and more.

Back in the Studio, you’ll learn how to access your assets right at your fingertips and easily transform them to use as you work across other mobile apps or your favorite CC desktop apps including Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign. You’ll leave with digital artwork that commemorates your experience in L.A., and a new approach for working anytime, anywhere inspiration strikes.

Sunday, October 3 –  9am – 5pm

Experience level/requirements:

  • BYO smartphone, iPad, or camera for taking photos
  • Basic familiarity with Adobe Illustrator, InDesign, or Photoshop — instruction not included in this lab
  • Comfortable being outdoors for a half-day in a potentially busy public area
