Want an incredible, meaningful gift? Imagine your poster gracing the walls of your loved one's new home, or the mantelpiece of well-traveled parents. With their addresses or other info in hand, you can use these techniques to create unforgettable artwork.
In this self-paced, project-based class, you'll use Photoshop to add the addresses of all the places you've lived (or places you've traveled, or people who are important to you - anything goes) to a large-scale poster. I'll show you how to arrange numbers, resize and balance type, add graphical elements, and use Photoshop brushes for distressing the edges! I'll also show you how to resize your project for printing at any size from a postcard to a 24x36 inch poster, which you can have printed at home or at your local print shop.
This is THE class to create a large-scale wall art poster! You may see this style of art everywhere, but it also comes with a pretty price tag. This class will teach you how to create your own custom poster from scratch!
Photoshop brush sets
Different Styles of fonts
Video instructions to help your through the process step by step
As a special bonus, legendary crafter Heidi Swapp will show you how to take this same Subway Art and use it to make different projects - album covers, framed art, candles, and more!
For this particular project, you will want to start by gathering different places, names or facts that you will use in your poster. You will also need any version of Photoshop or Photoshop Elements. I also recommend that you take my free Course 1: We've Just Begun class before enrolling in this class. It'll give you the following skills you'll need:
Opening, saving, and closing Photoshop documents
Adding photos and using clipping masks
Adding type in a single line
Printing from Photoshop
The Subway Art Poster Class is THE perfect introduction to Wall Art! By the end of class, you will not only know photo editing techniques needed to create the piece, but also how to take this technique to the next level! How awesome is that? We love to see your art work, and with every JessicaSprague.com course, there are many different ways to get in touch to show off your art, or ask a question! Register now, and I'll see you in class!
