Art of the iPhone: Apps Creative 

Saturday, September 22 & 29 (9am - 12:30pm)

This is a workshop where image meets imagination. Because abstract art doesn’t have to be an accurate representation of the subject, you have the freedom to be as creative with your photo editing processes as you wish. Using inexpensive apps, the possibilities are endless, limited only by your imagination. Dream it and you can do it on your iPhone or iPad. 

Jan Armor will show you how to transform your pictures using powerful (and inexpensive) editing apps. You will discover the art of compositing two or more images to create an altered reality. We will work with several alternative cameras to extend the limits of what is possible with the one in your iPhone or iPad. We will employ different “workflows” that make using these apps easy. 

Cost: $100 for Members OR $120 for Non-Members
