oh hey thanks :3 and nope, I hadn’t opened ps until I went to calarts! I wasn’t the only one who hadn’t either lol (most people have experience in it though). they don’t exactly straight up teach it in a class but you’re working around people who are using it all the time!—which is great because people are cool and will help you out with navigating it and stuff. It’s pretty intuitive for just drawing though. it personally just took me a while to feel comfortable in having my art transfer through digitally but stay loose and have fun with it.
If you’re applying good luck!! if you got in see ya in the fall!!
