Do you struggle to adjust the size of your images for a grant application? Do you have projects you would like to develop digitally, but the technical maze of Photoshop scares you? Then this class is for you. The class size is limited to four students: this format allows for lots of personal attention. The curriculum is based on students' projects, while covering the functioning structure of Photoshop. Students will end up knowing what they came for, and a little bit more, while getting a real logical understanding of the program. At the end of the class, opening a scary Photoshop book, will be less intimidating, and learning will become easier. Experimentation is encouraged through usage of different papers for printing and transferring images, and through mastering large size printing.
Bring your work for scanning (objects, photographs, drawings, 35mm slides, transparencies). While working on individual projects, artists learn to control resolution, contrast, adjust color, use selections and layers for collage in any photocomposition in the iMac equipped Digital Lab. You will learn how to output your images as high-resolution inkjet prints at 17" x 24", using the Epson 7800, on different papers and transperencies used in photo printmaking processes. The digital lab is newly equipped with 4 of the latest iMacs and CS4. Feel free to e-mail Ana Golici at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions about this class.
Ana Golici is an artist/lithographer formerly of the Podul printmaking workshop in Romania. Ms. Golici came to the USA in 1987 where she continued her study of lithography with Bob Blackburn at the Printmaking Workshop. The New York cultural atmosphere inspired Ms. Golici, heightening the pace of her creative process: she started to experiment with Xerox transfers, on stone, on paper, on anything. Later, the computer proved to be the most efficient and effective tool for developing her ideas. Ana creates her work using Photoshop, printing large format images on a variety of papers, and experimenting most of the time. Because of Ms. Golici’s traditional printmaking background, the digital prints she creates do not look like digital prints.
Ms. Golici has participated in many printmaking biennials and triennials in Europe, USA, and Asia. Her work has been exhibited in New York Hall of Science, Hunter College Times Square Gallery, East-West Gallery in NY, IPCNY, Wave Hill, NY, and Palatele Brincovenesti, Romania. She has works in the Library of Congress Collection and in private and state collections in Europe and USA.
