Learn raster-based digital art creation with an artist that has been using Photoshop since nearly the day the software was introduced, even before Layers were introduced. Learn vector illustration with programs like Illustrator. Photoshop and Illustrator are the industry standards in the digital art and design communities. Computer software interfaces are built on metaphors that link digital processes to traditional tools and equipment, and Tim has worked with everything from cyanotypes and larger format negatives to 3D printing and laser cutting. He was also teaching online as early as 1999.Learn digital processes from an artist that has mixed media and styles throughout his career – he’s both “old school” and “bleeding edge.” Discover how to bridge the gaps between traditional and digital worlds. The workshop will focus mainly on the digital realm, but address how that work can co-exist with traditional media.

Tim Guthrie is one of the most diverse digital artists you would have the opportunity to work with. He’s a filmmaker, digital illustrator, a 3D printing artist, mixed-media and multi-media artist. If you ever wanted to work with a multi-talented artist with the opportunity to learn multiple techniques and explore ways to combine high-tech and traditional media, this is your chance.
