Photoshop Hands-On Fun Day at Lakes Region Art Association
February 29, 2020 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
Photoshop Hands-On Fun Day
One can watch others using Photoshop until the cows come home, but if you really want to learn it, you need to do it! That’s what we’ll be doing at the Lakes Region Art Association gallery on Feb. 29 – learning by doing.
A hands-on workshop using creative tools within Photoshop will be led by local photographer/ instructor Ellen Goddard Jacques. As you can see from the accompanying photograph, cut-and-paste tools within Photoshop allow users to create images that are fun and unique, but those same tools can also be used to create photographic works of art.
Participants will learn how to select parts of images using lasso and quick-selection tools, then move, rotate and resize them for creative effect. While functions such as “masking,” “warping” and “transform” tools might sound intimidating, these techniques can easily be learned, especially through hands-on practice with step-by-step instruction.
In addition to the above, participants will learn how to create and stack “layers,” change colors of any section of an image, and cut and paste image components for creative effect. All participants will be given a series of images to work on, so everyone can learn together. Participants must have a current version of Photoshop CC installed on a laptop or tablet.
The workshop will start at 9 a.m. at the Lakes Region Art Association Gallery, in the Tanger Outlet Mall in Tilton. Class size is limited. For more information or to register, contact the instructor at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (603) 867-4101.
