Digital Art Using Adobe Photoshop and Premiere for 16 to 18 Year Olds

Central Saint Martins
Taught by
Daniel Wallis


On this experimental course students will take a less traditional approach to art making. By learning a variety of digital image manipulation techniques using Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Premiere Pro you will learn to create unique and interesting pieces while also learning the technical skills necessary to use each program. This will be achieved by learning skills in collage, distortion, colour manipulation, transition and simple image animation.

Students will be able to create their own series of new artworks and through simple task-based activities there will be plenty of opportunity to experiment with techniques and find new ways to independently create work. The course will also respond to and include work of contemporary international artists, who use both traditional and digital manipulation within their practice. This course is a great opportunity to create some fabulous additions to your portfolio, helping them stand out from the crowd.
