Just a little over a week ago, we attended a special session organized by Intel Malaysia to experience art with Intel-based touch-screen devices.
The software used for this session was Fresh Paint, and you’ll need Windows 8 to be able to use this app.
I had my share of digital painting, it was printed out and framed too!
During the session, the attendees were each provided a touch screen device to use and I was really happy to be assigned a Samsung ATIV Smart PC. 😀 Probably the best designed Windows 8 device, because it comes with a Windows button that I can actually press!
That aside, the experience was good. While the artist in me thinks that digital painting is far from being suitable for serious canvas painting, I think such touch screen devices are great for education purpose, especially for pre-school and primary school. No more messing around with paint pastels and cleaning up the mess after a session, and no waste of paper.
