Who is it for?

I have created the workshop I wished I had access to when I was working all of these skills out for myself! What took me years of trial and error I am so happy to share with you.

This class is perfect if you have some computer skills, and basic knowledge of PhotoShop (i.e. are not scared of it!).

If you are ready to scan your journals and photograph your paintings for reproduction to share with the world via your blog, magazines submissions, gifts, licensing, Etsy, Society 6 or your own store

Who is it not suited for?

This workshop does not address basic computer skills.

I do cover each process within PhotoShop step by step, but it may be too much for a complete computer ‘newbie’. I recommend that you attend a basic computer class at your nearest Adult/Continued learning facility.

We cover Packaging your prints in this workshop, but not selling or marketing your work. That will be the focus of a future workshop. But you are welcome to discuss strategies and ideas with the Print & Scan community.

How the Workshop is Delivered

  • Lifetime Access
  • Pause, rewind and review each lesson as often as you like.
  • Private Community to meet with other artists!
  • Log into a private area of the JD website to access your workshop!
  • I have created this class so you can take all the time you need and let the magic happen!

    All sessions for the Self-guided study classes are up when you arrive. This means there’s no waiting for projects to be posted and you can take the course at whatever pace works for you.

    You can revisit, rewatch, recharge and remind yourself of all the art supplies, all the drawing lessons, all the mixed media inspiration whenever you want.

    You need never feel embarrassed about not ‘clicking’ with a new skill straightaway. It’s a terrible feeling when you feel left behind, or that you dont ‘get it’ and everyone else does in a learning situation! But you will NEVER feel that way in my classroom because you can pause and rewind, and ask questions.

    Full instructions are on the site if this is your first online class experience. You are in safe hands!

    “For ages people have been asking me for prints of my art journal pages and I have been really flattered but also really scared of the whole process of getting my art out of my journal and into people’s hands. For some reason my brain just fizzed and popped when I tried to contemplate what it would take. So for the longest while I just didn’t do anything.

    Then I found this course and I felt so relieved that the magic process can be explained and – hopefully – it doesn’t have to be too difficult. Thank you Jane Davenport for bringing this class into existence.”
