It’s not too late to sign up for "Adobe Photoshop: A Tool for Scientific Illustrators" !
This workshop, aimed for illustrators who are familiar with basic media for scientific illustration (Graphite, pen/ink, watercolor), will expand their toolbox to include digital media. The singlemost common mistake made bystudents is to forget everything they learned in art class and try to recreate the wheel. We
will treat Photoshop as another tool.The foundation of good drawing-light on form, composition, color theory, and storytelling will be emphasized and revisited throughout the class.
The class will focus on becoming familiar with the workspace and to select the tools most commonly used by professional
scientific illustrators. We will also cover commontroubleshooting and how to avoid being controlled by Photoshop. In the intermediate
to advanced courses,
the class will discussdifferent methods to separate pixels and selections for efficiency andhidden yet useful tools.
