About This Class

In this class you'll learn how you can recycle your old art, using Photoshop! 

Instead of starting from scratch, jump right into the fun of mixed media digital painting by working directly on top of a finished piece. This mixed media approach will free you up creatively and have you feeling inspired. Since you already have a finished drawing, you will be able to fully explore different creative outcomes. And with Photoshop, this is made easy.

We'll explore how experimenting with new textures, colors, values, proportions and storytelling can give you a completely new piece! All you need to get started is an old drawing, Photoshop, and a drawing tablet.

So grab that piece you have lying around that's been gathering dust and let's start recycling!

*A good knowledge of photoshop basics is recommended before taking this course.
