Workshop: Digital Dilemmas: Basic Photo Editing

Limit: Limit of 10 per workshop. Registration required.


In today’s increasingly digital art world, it can be easy for artists to feel left behind. Not everyone has access to the same opportunities and resources, yet museums and galleries rely on digital portfolios and online calls for entry to make big decisions about what they display and who they promote.


This April, the Archives will host two free, basic photo editing workshops to chip away at the digital divide. Digital Dilemmas: Basic Photo Editing will teach artists how to prepare photos of their work for online sharing and submissions, including how to crop, skew, resize, and perform simple image enhancement. Held in a small group format, the workshops will provide thorough, hands-on instruction by industry professionals and a support team of skilled teaching assistants.


Sessions will be offered for both smartphones and desktop computers using free, publicly accessible software. On Wednesday, April 27, 5:00 – 6:30pm, join photography wizard Ryn Clarke and learn the magic of basic photo editing on your mobile device. Clarke, who has taught smartphone editing workshops across the country, will share her knowledge in an accessible, easy-to-follow format. Attendees will be given instructions how to download the free software, which is compatible with both macOS (iPhone) and Androids operating systems.


Space is limited to 10 per workshop. To attend the free programs, register using the link below. Prior the events, tips on how best to prepare will be sent to registrants via email. Questions always welcome!
