Adobe Features Academy of Art University in New Video
Striving to posture students six months ahead of art and design technology is a driving force of Academy of Art University. When Adobe, a global leader in digital media solutions, created a #CreateNowEdu campaign to showcase how their platforms inspire creativity, they thought it best to feature Gordon Silveria, Associate Director of Technology, in the Academy’s Schools of Illustration and Jewelry & Metal Arts.
The below video features Silveria instructing eager students on the latest Adobe Illustrator and Flash programs, demonstrating how to create interactive illustration environments on an iPad. Silveria discusses his approach to inspiring creativity in his students, with the inclusion of a quote by the artist Chuck Close: “Waiting for inspiration is just for amateurs. The rest of us sit down and get to work.”
