A free two-part workshop called Photoshop Elements for Artists will be offered from noon to 3 p.m. Feb. 15 and 22 at the Oswego Public Library.
The workshop will be led by artist and teacher Bill DeMott in the Library Learning Center.
This workshop is being offered in conjunction with the Art Association of Oswego’s AAO Outreach, which is funded in part by a grant from CNY Arts of Syracuse.
DeMott, who teaches art classes for SUNY Oswego and Cayuga Community College, regularly works with students in both traditional and digital art.
“The goal of this workshop is really to get local artists up to speed on digital manipulation and rendering–which used to seem like optional knowledge, but isn’t anymore,” DeMott said.
“Manipulating digital images is something that even traditional studio artists really need to know about,” he said. “There is an expectation that most artists are already digitally savvy, and so many of us are trying to play catch-up.”
This workshop is free, but space is limited. Future classes and workshops may be forthcoming.
