A basic comfort level with Photoshop is required for all of John Paul's sessions.
Participants need a digital camera, portable computer, and Adobe Photoshop or Adobe Lightroom. Manufacturer loans may be available. Photographic skills, an open mind, and curiosity are the primary requirements for this week. Students will be required to have only a general understanding of digital imaging, though some experience with Photoshop is recommended. The more you bring to the week, the more you'll take back.
"John Paul is uniquely generous and open in sharing his approach to creating art, and he's a master at the process. I recommend this workshop to anyone who wants to address creativity 180 degrees removed from what is boring, trite, dogmatic, unenlightened. This curriculum is as good as pedagogy gets."
