About This Class

Mash-up: Where pencil meets pixels guides you through a fun and engaging digital art project where you will learn how to enhance your traditional art into a digital masterpiece that you can share with friends & family, your social media circles-everyone! Enrolling in this easy-to-follow class will inspire you to create a wide range of digital mixed-media pieces using stock photography, custom brushes, textured backgrounds and your own photos and artwork. 

Using traditional art materials, a scanner and Photoshop, you will learn how to:

· Develop a beginning to intermediate photoshop skillset by enrolling in an entertaining class project, not by reading a boring how-to manual

· Manipulate scanned images by adding color, texture and text using Photoshop

· Emulate the look of oil, pastel or watercolor as it appears in traditional art, creating your own custom brushes in Photoshop, to give your art project a personalized look and feel.

· Digitally compose your work using Photoshop layers, masks, clipping paths

· Add “wow” to your work using various Photoshop effects and filters

Whether you are a mixed-media artist, graphic designer, illustrator, photographer, or just love to be creative…Mash-up: Where pencil meets pixels is for you!

Great course, thanks Jami!
Cool class, very unique. The way he taught it was enjoyable and informative.





I have been working as a traditional artist up until the late 90’s where I began experimenting with digital art and photography. Now my work is a fusion of all these elements.   Since 1998, I have worked as a full time graphic designer and illustrator.  In my career, I have created designs for Anheuser-Busch, Inc., Microsoft, The Venetian Hotel and Resort of Las Vegas and many more. In my capacity as a graphic designer, I have had package and signage designs placed in REI, Costco, Walmart, Sports Authority and many others.  Additionally, I have designed for a wide variety of industries from apparel, food and beverage, and home décor.

I live in Seattle, WA with my best buddy Cash AKA “The Dapper Tom Around Town”
