Photoshop for artists

by Mary-Anne Bartlett on March 7, 2018

This fun three-day course is designed for people wanting to use Photoshop to enhance their own artwork or creative photography.  

Wildlife and landscape artist Shelly Perkins uses this versatile computer programme to create her own beautiful digital artworks, combining traditional line drawings and paintings with digital techniques creating multi-layered collages.

She will show you how to use the powerful tools in Photoshop to edit artwork of any type by adding texture, colour, removing blemishes, combining elements… the possibilities are endless, but just like any form of art you must still use imagination and creative skills to get the results you want!

The workshop is purposefully set out in bite sized steps and tasks from the absolute basics through to the more complex elements of the programme to consolidate understanding of the diverse tools.  Some of the key skills you will learn are how to: create layers, work with photographs and turn photos into art, make patterns using shapes, and how to stitch work together to piece together different elements of a same image.

Download the programme and bring a laptop with you (we’ll send you a link to the software beforehand).

Shelly will give demos as well as one-to-one tuition as you work up your own images. There will be time for group discussions and time to show the progress of our own work.

At the end of each day there is the option to gather in a local restaurant or pub for a convivial Art Safari evening (dinner not included).

£285 for all three days, including lunches & refreshments

Places must be pre-booked on 01394 382235 or
