Digital Painting workshop brings creativity to corporate setting

 

Wednesday, December 9, 2015 - 5:00am

Staff at Mercedes Benz Financial Services (MBFS) in Mississauga took part in a unique digital painting workshop in November. OCAD University faculty member Veronika Szkudlarek, accompanied by student Dahae Song, visited MBFS offices for an exploration of the fundamentals of Digital Painting and Expanded Animation (DXPA).

The workshop kicked off with an overview of the history of digital painting led by Szkudlarek. Song then presented a selection of her work, explaining the digital process and hybridized approach. The dozen MBFS staff who participated were delighted by the inspiring and interactive event.  

MBFS has partnered with OCAD U to bring creative thinking to the workplace and support the university’s contribution to the cultural community. Currently, 70 works of art by OCAD U students, alumni and faculty are on display at MBFS in the Experiencing Perspectives exhibition. The company generously supports OCAD U through awards, scholarships and the funding of the Drawing & Painting graduate catalogue.
