Your art toolbox is in your pocket! Create complex composite images on your mobile devices. No need to struggle with Photoshop!

Course Description:

Under the tutelage of award-winning artists and instructors Fran Forman and Suzi Moore McGregor, masters of the digital collage, you will spend three fun-filled days creating digital composites on your mobile device or your laptop. You will be using and learning the latest apps for your iPhone or iPad. If you’re an intermediate (or above) Photoshop user, you are welcome to create your composites on your laptop. There will be demos each day to enhance your expanding toolbox of compositing, using some of the most advanced compositing tools on our mobile devices. Each day there will be presentations, demonstrations, and hand-outs, with time to practice the various tools. We will use these tools to create multi-layered images using found images and textures, as well as images you shoot on location or bring with you. We are planning excursions in and around Denver to accumulate additional “assets” for your collages. Each day, we will deconstruct, analyze, and critique all of our creations. Fran and Suzi work closely with each student, trouble-shooting and demonstrating as needed. Our classes are lively and fun, and students are delighted with the joy they experience as they gain new skills and create their own award-winning work.
