Wacom for education

Advanced art & design instruction

Wacom's Cintiq and Intuos Pro products inspire creativity and prepare students interested in pursuing art or design careers.

Your art school or art program works with students to build their skills, reach their potential and prepare them for successful careers, whether they pursue animation, game development, fashion design, product design, film, photography and graphic design. Students need to be grounded in time-tested curriculum and fundamentals. At the same, technology now plays an increasingly important role. Our Cintiq Companion tablets, Cintiq creative pen displays and Intuos Pro tablets are a key element to giving students the training and experience they need.

Introducing aspiring art and design students to the same graphics tablets and pen displays used professionally by industry leading studios and agencies enhances their freedom of expression and accelerates their creative development. Our pen input lets students work fluidly whether they are drawing, creating new designs, building 3D models or editing photos. Implementing our creative products in the classroom can provide critical benefits.

  • Teach students to use the products they will use in their professional career.
  • Assure that students have the tools needed to create job-winning portfolios.
  • Attract highly qualified students with state-of-the-art equipment.

The success of students in your art program is tied to the skilled instructor's guidance, ability to connect with students and encouragement. At Wacom, our goal is to help your art and design instructors and students be as successful as possible.

Animation as a profession, whether creating for feature films, documentaries or advertising, has been growing by leaps and bounds for more than a decade. For schools with animation majors or those that are considering starting one, this growth requires that animation programs have the technology and curriculum to properly prepare students for a career in animation. Since Wacom's Cintiq Companion tablets, Cintiq creative pen displays and Intuos Pro pen tablets are a staple among professional animators, employing Wacom's professional line of input devices in the classroom or lab allows instructors to create "real life" scenarios for their students. In addition, for instructors seeking to help students improve their software and drawing skills, the pen used with Wacom's Cintiq and Intuos Pro products delivers unparalleled pressure sensitivity to all of the 2D and 3D creative applications being used by today's professional animators.

Today's design and illustration students need to understand both traditional and digital media. While technology is constantly changing, the core skills – the ability to tell stories and communicate visually – stay the same. Whether studying graphic design, industrial design, fashion design or classic illustration, a passion for drawing and creativity are the reasons students are following these artistic tracks. Feeding that passion begins with making sure students have access to the digital technology that will help them carry what they learn in school directly to their first job. Design and illustration classrooms equipped with Wacom’s line of creative pen displays or pen tablets allow faculty and students to explore and develop concepts in a natural and intuitive way. A lab of Cintiq displays or Intuos Pro tablets delivers a "real world" workflow experience to students and makes teaching software techniques much easier for instructors.

Mastering the tools and techniques of photography is critical to the success of students pursuing a career in commercial or fine art photography. Upon graduation, your students will need to understand the entire image editing process and be capable of performing such post-production tasks as retouching, compositing and color balancing. Teaching such tasks starts with having the right equipment for the job. Whether your students want to become a freelance photographer, pursue event or portrait photography or work as an advertising, fashion, editorial or corporate photographer, it will be expected that they will be proficient using a Wacom pen tablet with Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom as well as other digital manipulation software applications. The Intuos Pro tablets or Cintiq creative displays are ideal choices for the college or university photography lab. They connect easily to either a desktop or laptop computer and provide amazing creative control over the editing process.
