Photoshop Elements for the Artist

About this Workshop:


This four-week course of 3-hour sessions (12 hours total) provides extensive training to Photoshop Elements 2019 or 2020, specifically for the art student.  It teaches all of the fundamentals and basic, essential Elements’ tools that an artist needs to enhance and edit great images, as well as how to analyze a work in progress, abstract a concept, find inspiration, and create a color palette to analyze and create color changes. You will also learn how to transfer your images to the canvas, either by creating a B/W (tonal) outline of your image, creating a grid, or printing your image to actual canvas size (and tracing it onto the canvas).  In addition, you will learn about image size adjustments, pixels per inch (PPI), PS Elements’ digital canvas size, cropping (and other methods to arrive at proportional photos to your canvas), and how to prepare digital images for submission to art shows or competitions. Registration: This workshop is offered through Compass Atelier.
