Basic Computer Skills: You should be able to open and save files in Photoshop. We will walk you through everything from scanning to printing (and most everything in between).

While we will cover some basics, we will be diving deep into the tools. This is not just a class for beginners. Even we learned from each other while putting this class together, even in tools as basic as Hue and Saturation!

Painting/Drawing: Your paintings and drawings should be dry and ready to scan.

Hardware: A working computer (Mac or PC is fine) and a scanner or a phone to photograph your art. Recommended, but not required: drawing tablet like a Wacom with a pen

Software: Adobe Photoshop CS5 or up
