Photoshop for Architects 2.0: 3-Day Intensive Workshop

Event Type: Seminar/Wkshop
Facility: Architecture and Community Design (HMS)
Presented By: School of Arch. & Community Design
Course objective:

This workshop will teach students the basics of Adobe Photoshop, enabling students to generate compositions from a two dimensional surface and enhancing its readability through line weights, color, 
tone, artistic creativity, and personal expression.

This course will be used for learning Photoshop’s basic functions and will also serve as a catalyst for the design process, further increasing productivity and efficiency.  Additionally, students will be taught 
how to apply parts of their design projects that utilize photos, digital media, and free-hand media to develop their compositions and explore issues of representation.

The first half of class time will be spent working on assignments that explore Photoshop functions and 
how they are applied to create the final image. Students will learn how to manipulate images to address the needs of a specific project.

The latter portion of the class will be dedicated to critique and feedback from the instructor.  Student examples from in-class will be presented to demonstrate variations of the in-class exercise.

Home screen / Tools Panel / Hot keys
