"Photoshop for Photographers Workshop"
July 30-31, 2022
 

Photoshop has become the editing tool of choice for photography: an essential part of the “digital darkroom,” allowing the photographer to make precise corrections to carefully defined parts of a photo. It is nearly indispensable for refining an image to make it the most impactful, especially if it is to be digitally printed. This two-session hands-on workshop will focus on the needs of photographers and show you how to unlock the potential within the program. Learn how to do quick edits for things like social media and how to work with layers and masks -- a method that gives you virtually unlimited image control.

"Photo Encaustic: Ethereal Markings and Monochrome Workshop"
October 21-23, 2022
 

This workshop will explore ways to further alter our photographic images through a series of markings and underpainting combined with monochromatic imagery. We will focus on incorporating embedded photo prints on thin papers such as tissue and Japanese papers, as well as image transfers to create final work that is both ethereal and richly detailed in its layers. We will start off utilizing various methods of underdrawings to bring in pattern and additional detail to our work – with wood burning tools, inks, oil paints, and encaustic. Students must have a working knowledge of encaustic, as this is an intermediate level class and basics will not be covered. See website for full details.
