I'd like to thank the Mt. Vernon Conservancy for allowing me to bring my workshops to
Mt. Vernon Place this summer. It has been a wonderful experience. We still have a children's class this Saturday and another watercolor class scheduled for some time in September.
Before time gets away from me, I am posting some links for those who attended the class on July 11. Please feel free to email or message me if you have questions about any of the apps or processes.
Adobe Corporation is one of the places I go for artistic inspiration,tools and instruction.
Many of the desktop applications are subscription based, however, they have many free apps and learning resources. Here are some you might want to check out:
Photoshop Mix v2.0 (Android, iOS): Work With Layers on Touchscreens Forget about Photoshop Touch and even the powerful Photoshop Express. Adobe is working hard on a new app that puts both of those to shame. In July, Photoshop Mix finally updated to v2.0 and brought a slew of fantastic new features.
Photoshop Fix (iOS): The Best of Photoshop Touch, for Free The touchscreen-friendly version of Photoshop has been around for some time, but Photoshop Express burdens you with annoying in-app purchases. However, not many people know about Photoshop Fix, and it’s Adobe’s best-kept secret.
Adobe Spark Suite (Web, iOS): Create Beautiful Posts, Articles, or Videos Not everyone is born with great aesthetic sense. So even if you’re good with creating content, you might not have the style to be able to translate it into an incredible video or a photo with gorgeous graphics.
Adobe Photoshop Sketch | Sketch and paint app
Create expressive drawings anywhere using natural drawing tools like pencils, pens, markers, and watercolor brushes with Adobe Photoshop Sketch.
The Adobe Education Exchange
This is a free resource with courses for teachers and students.
Brushes for Photoshop and Sketch
Use Master Painter Edvard Munch's brushes in Adobe Photoshop and Sketch
Check out this link and video to see how Kyle T. Webster created 7 brushes from the master's actual archived paintbrushes.
In my professional life I am foremost an artist. I am happiest when making something. I love to "try things out" and create prototypes until I hit on something that "works"
