Learn to manipulate images with digital media and bring digital sketches to life with watercolor painting. Take advantage of the non-destructive methods of working in Photoshop to experiment image manipulation before diving into the committed world of watercolor painting. Students will play with manipulating color, value and hue, textural filters and color combinations using sourced photographs. Students can choose to work from provided or selected image sources. The second portion of the class will task students to bring those digital sketches to life with watercolors, further pushing the images through this fluid medium. Class will combine demonstrations in digital and watercolor techniques, feature class critiques and discussions. Students can choose to work in long form projects or short term experiments.

Land Acknowledgment: Gage Academy of Art would like to acknowledge that we stand on the traditional ancestral lands of the Coast Salish peoples—specifically the Duwamish People, past and present—and honor, with gratitude, the land itself, the Duwamish Tribe, and their ancient heritage. Without them, we would not have access to this gathering, dialogue and learning space. We ask that we take this opportunity to thank the original caretakers of this land, who are still here.
