About Project

Problem: What problem is this project trying to address?

There is fundamental need to express own vision by creative work, to be an artist, to rejoin in happiness of creating Fine ART. Everyone is creative. My mission is to open to everyone the way to express their artistic vision. Art-Photoshop is a revolutionizing, innovative way to create Fine ART with digital imaging. And it is open to almost everyone! Many people would be happy to learn and practice to make Fine ART from photos. Fine ART Portrait from Photo or Fine ART from any Photo made by themselves makes people enormously happy! I would like to show people what they can do and how happy human being can be while creating Fine ART. I believe that potentially every member of community is a target, but baby boomers(my genereation) and children would be my immediate target

Solution: What is the proposed solution? Please be specific!

Art-Photoshop Association to provide the whole cycle of producing Fine ART from photo, starting with workshops on Photoshop or similar program, then taking photos, making actual piece of art from photo with digital imaging and finally have it printed on canvas with giclee printing company. Because, no matter how great Fine ART may look on computer screen, it looks SENSATIONAL on canvas! Person once went though the whole process of conceiving, creation and bringing it in a solid form of material existence has a life changing experience! When more and more people learn and succeed in being their own artist, art would jump to new Renaissance flourishing on human creativity. Any community which is lucky to have many people fulfilling their creative needs would be most prosperous and generally healthy. Apart from all, people learn valuable skills - graphic design, digital editing, photography, noticing things with artistic eye. Those skills are very helpful in career or business.
Impact: How does it Work

Example: Walk us through a specific example(s) of how this solution makes a difference; include its primary activities.

Learning how to use digital imaging program i.e. Photoshop to the very proficient level. Taking photos: with people, scenery, objects, events and so on, developing artistic eye / sight. Digitally editing own photos to produce a work of art, using Photoshop Have the final image printed by giclee printing company on canvas Exhibit the art-work on Art-Photoshop art-shows Become an artist. As a result people will have valuable career or business skills and a creative hobby to make them happy or even to build the life upon. There should be - premises for workshops and gallery for art-shows. - multi-users Photoshop program - a budget for canvas printing
Sustainability

Marketplace: Who else is addressing the problem outlined here? How does the proposed project differ from these approaches?

There are many tutorials for Photoshop, photography and many offers to print images in canvas. But somehow it never comes to this main point - create your own Fine ART from your own photo, have it produced on the canvas and put it on your wall or make a most unique gift to someone. There is a need for new mass art, which would be mass but fine -art. That need is still here to fulfil. Only mass creativity can produce fine mass art.
