INTRODUCTION OF COMPUTER-AIDED PAINTING INTO ARCHITECTURE AND ART CREATIVITY


One of the important areas of computer graphics training in architecture and art education is computer-aided painting. Creating a picture from start to end on a computer is a relatively new trend in fine arts. The "computer painting» technique includes hundreds of steps and involves a special strategy for developing a computer image, as well as an ability to handle unique tools, modifiers and software. Electronic images are created not by rendering computer models but by using computer imitations of artist’s traditional tools. To be able to draw well on the computer, it is necessary to know and be able to apply all of the wealth of skills and knowledge amassed by generations of artists.

Programs for artists contain a unique set of possibilities for media painting. One of the most popular professional software for computer artists is Corel®Painter™. By mastering the toolkits and techniques made available by such software, would-be designers may enhance their career opportunities in various areas: concept art, fashion illustration, photography, etc.

The article outlines conflicts and issues that may arise when introducing computer painting into the teaching and learning process. Ways to resolve these issues may be identified in the course of practical working, teaching, participation in design competitions, design practice, and computer-aided creativity.

Key words: computer graphics, computer painting, information technologies, architectural education
