The Art of Creating an Idea for Print Competition

with Judy Reinford, M.Photog.M.Artist.,Cr.,CPP

1:00pm-5:30pm (the extended day): Taking an idea and creating with it! We will source the images, look for the perfect pieces, and then put it together!

Learn how to find source images and start putting it all together into a story that will turn into your final work of art. Things discussed will be perspective, lighting, angle shot and size of each image, how these play a key role in fitting together for the final piece, plus presentation, and naming. We will also go over the skills used in Photoshop to composite these images and Photoshop painting.

For those who want to follow along and work on images in class (optional) the required items are:

Computer, laptop or iMAC

Mouse or pen and tablet. Laptop attendees cannot do this work with a trackpad.

Photoshop 2018 or higher


Topaz Impression 2

Ability to plug in a USB jump drive if necessary.

7-9:30 (evening class):  Generating Ideas!  Instructor Judy Reinford will cover how to start the creative process to come up with ideas with a fun interactive exercise that people can take home and use on friends and family to get those creative juices flowing!
