Photoshop 101 – GROUP 2 – SPRING

This introduction to Photoshop class will give students a foundational knowledge of a tool that can be used to pursue graphic design, photo manipulation, print design, and a myriad of other careers. Incorporating fine art principles with technological execution will give students a variety of solid skills in basic design procedure that will be a launching pad for a diverse portfolio of work. Students can expect to submit projects each week to show they understand the technical aspects and there will be two large projects to incorporate their understanding of the technology, design principles, and craftsmanship in a creative format. This class is intended to give students a broad overview of this powerful industry-standard software. By the end of class, they should have mastered the basic layout and functions of Photoshop and begun to incorporate workflow habits that are essential to efficient and effective design.

Drawing for Everyone – GROUP 2

Drawing for Everyone is designed for both passionate art students and those wishing to simply explore this new skill.   We will cover foundational drawing techniques such as:  drawing materials, contours and gestures, negative space, sighting, hidden geometric forms, realistic shading, texture development, proportion, perspective (both linear and atmospheric), composition techniques, and, as a bonus, comic and character drawing.  Using live video around the class, we will enjoy a dynamic studio environment with lessons, demos and student drawing time. Outside of class, there will be daily sketch assignments and finished projects.  Supplemental tutorials and resource materials will be provided.  Encouraging critique and evaluation will be given by both student, teacher, and peers throughout the semester.

Students of differing levels are invited to take this course.  There will be beginner and advanced level projects given to meet the goals of enrolled students at their mastery level.   Students will only be required to supply basic drawing supplies (drawing pencils, kneaded eraser, pen, and sketchbook) but are certainly welcome to use finer, artist-grade supplies.  We will discuss this interesting topic in class.

The true fact about all great artists is that they only got better with practice, practice, and more practice!  If you are serious about learning how to draw, or really wish to improve your drawing skills, this course will offer ample opportunities.  Expect to spend 2-5 hours or more outside of class working on your drawing skills.  Prepare to grow in your skills and find exciting new ways to express yourself.
