Adobe Photoshop For Artists Weekend

Adobe Photoshop For Artists Weekend

Central Saint Martins
Taught by
Suky Best


A knowledge of Photoshop has become essential software for all visual artists. This course is specifically aimed at those who want to use the work to extend and develop their practice. This can range from intervention/development of individual images to speculative visualisations for commission proposals.

Students will be asked to bring in their own materials to work from as this will allow more student-centred learning. The tutor will also take into account the needs and interests of the student group and each course will be adapted accordingly.

This course differs from many software courses in that the tutor is a fine artist who also works freelance in the print industry, teaches on an MA in Fine Art, and assists and facilitates artists on specific projects. This means that a different emphasis is given to learning, and topics covered can change depending on the needs of the group

Topics covered

  • How to work with layers, correct/modify colour, retouching of existing image/modification of images and creation of collaged speculative images
  • How to maintain quality of images and making complex selections
  • Working with vectors within Photoshop

Level: Beginners

Who should take this course?

Visual artists.

Entry requirements

Students attending this course need to have basic computer skills, e.g know how to use email, basic knowledge of how to save.

Please note: This course is for students aged 18 and older
