Wednesday, March 15, 2017 - 3:00pm to 5:00pm

Join us for the fifth in our 5-part workshop series of creative art & design workshops taught by OCAD U students... who are paid for their work and time :D. 

Collage in Photoshop to create 3D environments with Jessee Abrahams: 
Students will learn how to apply filters, blending options and tools to create realistic 3D spaces using layers. At the end of session, each student will have a Photoshop collage that looks almost like a photograph. They will have also gained valuable knowledge about how to use tools beyond what may appear to be used for, and figure out a technique specific to how each individual works. Students should bring a laptop computer to the workshop and, if possible, a drawing tablet. Students can also bring digital photographs to use in their collage, though a sample pack of photographs will also be provided. 

Workshops are open to current students at OCAD U.

This workshop series is presented in partnership by the OCAD U Library's Learning Zone and the Writing & Learning Centre and supported by funding from the First Generation Program, administered by the WLC.

Retouching skin, colour, and texture in Photoshop Workshop with Jon Kim

Tuesday, March 14, 2017 - 3:00pm to 5:00pm

Join us for the fourth in our 5-part workshop series of creative art & design workshops taught by OCAD U students... who are paid for their work and time :D.

Retouching skin, colour, and texture in Photoshop with Jon Kim:
Students will learn how to create a mask that separates the image into a colour layer and a texture layer (high frequency separation mask). This allows you to be able to edit the colours of an image without damaging or changing the texture and vice-versa. The workshop will begin by demonstrating the potential uses of high frequency separation masks and afterward, participants will follow along with a step-by-step process of creating the layers. After the step-by-step demonstration, participants will then be given the chance to try it out on their own with raw files provided by Jon. Students should bring a laptop computer to the workshop.

Workshops are open to current students at OCAD U.
