Enhance your art class with Wacom and Corel!

Art class is a great way for students to express themselves and channel their creativity. But…. it can be quite messy.

Wacom Intuos Pro is a pen tablet that is perfect for drawing, sketching, and photo activities. Even if your students like to start on paper, the sketches can be converted into digital files to continue working on them. The Wacom Intuos Pro and the Wacom Pro Pen can be used in tandem with Corel Painter 2022 to create and edit beautiful works of art!

Using these products will not only teach your students about digital art and how to use it but also lessens the cost of using brushes, paint, and other art supplies. Check out our website and request a price quote for these products bundled together!

What do Different Colors mean?

Each color has a meaning or feeling associated with it. If you teach art or any creative subject, teaching your students how to tell a story and create a feeling in their work through colors is so powerful.

This knowledge can be put to use when creating web pages, advertising, marketing, and traditional artwork. Adobe has a great article about what each color means and the feelings they can invoke. Check it out here! And use the color palette generator from Adobe to try creating your own color palette! This could be a great art exercise for your students to pick a feeling and create a color palette to match it!

The Value in a VAR

From time to time I get asked the question “Is it better for us to buy from you instead of [insert manufacturer] ?”.

Simply put, yes. I’ll break down the reasoning for you…

When large companies like Adobe or Microsoft have products for sale, they list the price on their website. That’s good. But what they don;t do is aim to provide discounts. Why? Because they have channel partners. Lets take Adobe as an example. Adobe is a huge company…I’m talking globally traded huge. With a company of that size, it only makes sense for them to break up their products into several categories, and allow certain business to handle those market segments. Here at Genesis Technologies, we fall into the Education and Non-Profit channel distribution arena.

Is it better for schools to buy Adobe through us rather than Adobe directly? Heck yes! We are authorized by Adobe to provide additional discounts (the caveat is that we can not list our lowest possible price…so it is always better to call in to discuss pricing). We accept POs, and you get a dedicated representative. If you place a large order with Adobe, you will be bounced around with many different agents, the time to complete your order will be much longer, and the levels of competency fluctuate on a daily basis.

Working with a VAR who is partnered with larger companies (like us here at Genesis Technologies) ensures that your school gets the name brand software faster, and with more reliable service.
