This class is for artists who took at least one Photoshop class in advance, and want to improve on their skills. The class will be structured on students needs and level of expertise. Students will develop their projects while upgrading their photoshop knowledge in selecting, color control, using brushes, creating patterns, using filters, masks, and type.
Ana Golici has been teaching Photoshop classes for the last 14 years. Based on her teaching experience and her daily use of Photoshop on her own artistic projects, Ms. Golici developed a special class curriculum focused on fine artists' needs. Ana Golici is an artist/lithographer formerly of the Podul printmaking workshop in Romania. Ms. Golici came to the USA in 1987 where she continued her study of lithography with Bob Blackburn at the Printmaking Workshop. The New York cultural atmosphere inspired Ms. Golici, heightening the pace of her creative process. She started to experimenting with Xerox transfers on stone, on paper, on anything. Later, the computer proved to be the most efficient and effective tool for developing her ideas. Ana creates her work using Photoshop, printing large-format images on a variety of papers, and experimenting most of the time. Because of Ms. Golici’s traditional printmaking background, the digital prints she creates do not look like digital prints.
Ms. Golici has participated in many printmaking biennials and triennials in Europe, USA, and Asia. Her work has been exhibited in New York Hall of Science, Hunter College Times Square Gallery, East-West Gallery in NY, IPCNY, Wave Hill, NY, and Palatele Brincovenesti, Romania. She has works in the Library of Congress Collection and in private and state collections in Europe and USA.
