🖌🖼 Learn how to create your next LMAC masterpiece!
Have you ever been stuck on an idea for an LMAC collage because you lacked the technical skills to realize it?
Then welcome to the LMAC School! Our curriculum is designed to help you unleash your full creative potential!
The weekly LMAC challenge enjoys the submissions of a great variety of imaginative collages. Sometimes it's little tricks and tweeks that make a collage stand out. Other times a completely new technique is needed to realize a certain idea.
The LMAC School aims to give every Hiver and LMACian the opportunity to gradually expand their technical skills so that only their own imagination sets the limit when making digital collages.
To achieve this ambitious goal, the LMAC School naturally needs skilled and committed instructors. And so it's with great pleasure to announce that the LMAC School could win over community member and pixel artist @quantumg to cover the first classes of our curriculum!
To make the LMAC School accessible to everyone, our courses will be based solely on free software solutions, such as Gimp.
