Digital Tools for Art Making


with Christine Mitzuk

Calendar Jun 28, 2024

If you'd like to learn more about the convenience and possibilities of digital tools like Photoshop, then this workshop is for you. Christine will teach you some of the essential digital skills she uses for her digital and traditional art making. Learn about different color modes for making art for print or on screen, “frankensteining” your reference, using a pencil drawing as a base for a digital painting, altering your sketch digitally to explore composition and value design, and drawing and painting digitally. We will not be using any AI/ML image generation tools. You will also be given suggestions to continue to practice on your own. About a week before the workshop, registrants will receive access to the workshop files.

The majority of our projects will be done using Photoshop. To avoid getting locked into a year-long Photoshop subscription, I recommend using the 7-day free trial of Photoshop for this workshop. We'll also look at alternatives to Photoshop that cost less.

Some technical assistance will be available. The workshop does not include any software or hardware.
