About This Class


Glitch is a really cool experimental technique of using deliberately induced errors and distortions for creative purposes.
It is often used in graphic design, fine art and photography to create something unexpected and to go beyond creative limits.

There are different ways glitch art can be created, and in this class I will be sharing my favourite manual glitch technique using a scanner. I am Evgeniya Righini-Brand, and I invite you to join me in this fun class to experiment and create striking and unpredictable images!

In this class you will learn about:

  • how you can create a range of different glitch effects,
  • what you can glitch,
  • what to keep in mind when setting up and using your scanner,
  • how to clean your scans in Photoshop and prepare them for further use.

You can use this glitch technique for:

  • creating striking visuals within for graphic design, illustration, art & photography projects;
  • generating visual ideas;
  • designing characters;
  • devising layouts. 

This class is suitable for any skill level, and all you will need is a scanner and some stuff to scan. You can also use Photoshop or any other image editing software to refine your work digitally after scanning.

I cannot wait to see your glitch art, join me in this class and let’s make something awesome!
