Portland, OR, March xx, 2022 – Xencelabs Technologies and Brainstorm School are partnering to offer the school’s online students a professional digital drawing tablet for use in their art and design programs. The phased roll-out will begin with Brainstorm’s summer 2022 program, delivering Xencelabs’ Pen Tablet and accessories for up to 1450 of the expected registrants. The summer registration period began February 28, with classes starting May 9, and the partnership is also planned to extend beyond summer to year-round use across the Brainstorm curriculum.
The primarily-online Brainstorm School’s mission is to provide an affordable art and design education platform accessible worldwide for students as well as working professionals who want to continue their education.
The school offers customized learning experiences for beginners to seasoned professionals. When students register for a Brainstorm class, they will receive a promotional code to purchase a Xencelabs Small, Medium and Bundle tablet (does not include the newly released special edition).
Using the Xencelabs tablets will not only enhance the students’ workflows but also introduce them to an example of the newest digital technologies that are standard use in today’s professional creative environments.
“The art and design world has changed tremendously with new technologies being a huge driving force,” said James Paick at Brainstorm School. “This shift impacts the advancement of our students as well as the advancement of the industry itself. Giving students access to technology that’s relevant in the current workplace helps to fully prepare them for success in their chosen fields.”
Brainstorm students typically range from college- to junior professional levels, however there are also courses geared to high school and even junior high school students. This diversity highlights the need for a flexible and portable tool like the Xencelabs tablets.
“We give our students a heavy workload and we want to make sure we emulate the real working world as much as possible,” said Thomas Brillante at Brainstorm. “A big part of that is offering the right tool and these tablets are perfectly designed for what these students need.”
The partnership with Brainstorm is Xencelabs’ latest collaboration with an educational institution.
“Education is such an important element of the Xencelabs mission,” said Hannah Imperial Cannon, Business Development Manager for Xencelabs. “Students and faculty members are still trying to adapt to a new way of teaching and learning, and these challenges are universal across education, from traditional universities to the college or high school level to online schools. Getting tablets into the hands of as many students as possible is our contribution to securing the future of the creative design and arts communities.”
