Exploring the World of
Possibilities with Photoshop
Sunday - Thursday
Join Ella for a look behind the curtain into the amazing imaging options available to us with Photoshop! In this class, we will use Photoshop to create all kinds of artistic effects, including retouching, digital painting, using patterns, creating creatures, textures and more! You don’t have to be an advanced user to join this class. Some experience in Photoshop is required but we will review some basics to get you on your way and then have lots of fun blasting through a universe of possibilities. Bring your Wacom tablet because we will be using out for retouching and painting along with using many of Photoshop’s other tools. Join us for a fun filled, inspiring week of play in Photoshop!
