YoloArts to Host Workshop for Artists on Digital Conversion of Artwork – “Converting Your Original Art Into Digital Format”
Presented by iPinion Multimedia Director and Photography Editor, Tracy J. thomas
Artistic mediums such as ceramics, fiber, oil and watercolor painting used by today’s 21st century artists are similar or identical to the media and techniques that have been used for numerous centuries in the creation of art. What is unique for 21st century artists are the computer based methods now available for communicating and promoting artwork.
In a mission driven effort to support the marketing of art created by Yolo County artists, YoloArts is hosting a workshop to teach the skills necessary to convert conventional artwork into a digital format for uploading and inclusion in websites, and useful for presentation and submission purposes. The workshop will be held Saturday, March 26, from 10 am until noon at the Yolo County Office of Education Conference Center, located at 1280 Santa Anita Court, Suite 100 in Woodland.
Leading the workshop will be professional photographer and California native and West Sacramento resident, Tracy Thomas. With experience in website creation, on-line art galleries, e-commerce stores and multimedia pieces, Thomas is expected to teach artists the most efficient ways to convert original artwork into a digital format. Thomas’ resumé includes work for Francis Ford Coppola Presents, Palladium Interactive, the Learning Company, Broderbund, and Mattel Interactive, as well as work with independent artists, photographers, and businesses in the creation of an on-line marketing presence.
Workshop participants should bring a digital point and shoot camera (with a minimum of 10 megapixels desirable) and one piece of original art to be photographed. The workshop fee is $5 for YoloArts members, and $10 for nonmembers.
RSVP’s for the workshop are requested by March 24 by calling YoloArts at 530-406-4844, or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org .
