Pixel Practice

What is Pixel Practice?

Pixel Practice is a website made to educate people about one of the more recent art styles that has been introduced, the pixel art style. While the pixel art style began as a digital format with limitations, due to the hardware at the time, it has had a resurgence in popularity due to its nostalgic appeal. The website aims to educate people about the subject of pixel art by teaching the history of it, instructing them on how to create basic shapes, and even allowing them to make content on the website using an interactive grid. Creating content one pixel at a time gives a sense of satisfaction that only arrives from  creating pieces one at a time to create a magnificent work of art in the end.
