Digital Collage is a technique that offers one the chance to explore different creative alternatives, in order to push the visual boundaries of a design, illustration or art piece.
In this workshop, you will learn how to make well-thought, practical and aesthetic collages through different creative exercises while using Photoshop.
Some of the techniques include cutting and modifying the images to convert them into the style that you are intending to create. The aim of the workshop is not only to teach Photoshop as a “tutorial” but also to guide the students through the creative process, while taking into consideration some basic concepts such as balance, composition and art direction, together with some technical insights.
For this course you need a laptop with Zoom (https://zoom.us) and Adobe Photoshop installed and a very basic knowledge of Adobe Photoshop:
› Knowing how to open / create and save a file.
› Being familiarised with the use of layers.
› Being able to make an easy selection (with ANY selection tool for example: lasso, marquee, magic wand, pen tool, etc), copy and paste them.
At the end of the workshop, you’ll be given an archive of images free to use, Photoshop tips and tricks, examples of professional work and more.
