Grab Your Spot: Photoshop for Designers 1 & 2 Group-Study

Mark your calendars! Photoshop for Designers 1 & 2 Group-Studies start on May 14, 2018!

Your creative spirit does not have to be inhibited by software or the digital art world. The two can come together in an amazing collaborative effort. In these 6-week courses you’ll discover the most efficient and effective use of Adobe Photoshop while creating the artwork that you love to design.

Photoshop for Designers 1 is an intensive course, so we recommend starting with that course and then taking Photoshop for Designers 2 when it runs again in the Fall or you can work through the self-study at any time! Members can register here.



New Design Challenge: May Softness

I am so excited to share this new design challenge with you! I found this to be a very inspiring trend and have already started preparing my canvases and background patterns.

This month we are focusing on the fashion market, and our challenge is all about softness–softness in color, line and form.

In the challenge we explore Softened Geos, Nostalgic Photos and Tapestry Vibes. Drawing inspiration from a variety of different cultures and perspectives.

You can read the full design challenge here.

And I can’t wait to see what you create!
