Course Description

Calling all Photoshop-savvy collage enthusiasts! Go on location in your imagination for a lab-based digital adventure led by image wizard Maggie Taylor, whose innovative work defies traditional labels. With her guidance, participants spend five days finessing a carefully crafted digital collage. It is a process that takes time and patience but also provides plenty of room for creativity and experimentation.

There are no locations in this adventure, just your workstation in The Workshops state-of-the-art digital lab. You arrive with a cache of images you've already begun to work with, and from there we push the boundaries of photographic shape-shifting.

Each morning Maggie conducts follow-along demos while elaborating on her own working techniques. For afternoon sessions, you provide your own images—as well as any materials you'd like to scan, from small objects to old photographs—and discover how to incorporate them into your project.

If you are comfortable working with layer masks in complex Photoshop files, you're a perfect candidate to travel through the magical and multifaceted world of digital imagery. At the end of our week together, you've made real progress on your collages and have gained new skills and techniques to stimulate your creativity.
