Digital artist/photographer, and Harlan County Kentucky native, Malcolm J. Wilson, will present, “Beyond The Camera: An Introduction to Photoshop Elements” May 19-22 at Hindman Settlement School in Hindman, KY. The workshop will focus on tools and techniques for adapting digital photos for use in communications projects and artistic expression. Demonstrations will include enhancing photos, image manipulation and preparing files for printing. Students will also learn to use Photoshop Elements and Corel Painter Essentials to create photo paintings.
Drawing inspiration from the historic Hindman campus, students will also take a couple of breaks from the classroom to go out and create some imagery for photo enhancement and/ or photo reconstruction. The workshop will include preparation of photo files for archival display and will culminate in a public photo exhibition on Saturday night at the Kentucky School of Craft Gallery.
Workshop participants should have basic computer skills, including an understanding of cut and paste, as well as a working knowledge of photo cataloging and/or photo editing software before enrolling in this course. Familiarity with at least one photo program such as iPhoto, Picasa, Picture Publisher, Elements, Photoshop, Aperture, Light Room, Photo Styler, Paint Shop or Corel Photo Album is a plus.
Workshop tuition is $250, which includes workshop printing and framing supplies, continental breakfast and snacks. For an additional fee, visitors may stay in cottage-style housing on the Hindman Settlement School campus.
