Microsoft Hardware officially kicks off the Art of Touch project today, an international art campaign that merges art and technology in a new and innovative way. Now anyone can be an artist by creating a unique and original digital masterpiece using a mouse and the Art of Touch palette now available at ArtOfTouch.com.
The Art of Touch palette allows you to create artwork on an interactive digital canvas using the technology at your fingertips, and contribute to an evolving global masterpiece that is showcased on the main page of the Art of Touch website. Choose from three digital brushes combined with five digital effects to create one-of-a-kind designs and patterns.
Once you have created your online masterpiece, submit and share your digital artwork through Facebook and Twitter. Have your friends vote on your artwork and share it with their friends too, because the artist with the most votes by Dec. 31 will earn the title of “featured artist” on the Art of Touch website, and will receive a grand prize package that includes personalized mice featuring the winning design! In addition, continue to save and submit new art for the weekly raffle — each vote counts as one raffle ticket for a chance to win PCs, mice and other great prizes!
