Shirt Lab Nashville 2024: Registration Open

Live decorated-apparel industry art department education event set for Aug. 9-10

June 13, 2024

Shirt Lab has announced its latest live education event focusing on the art and design side of the decorated-apparel industry, set to take place August 9-10 in Nashville, Tennessee. Attendance will be limited to 36 students.

Over the course of the event attendees will learn about:

  • Art department workflow, with a focus on sales to art to production
  • Simulated-process seps and how to separate files in Photoshop properly
  • Creating art with Midjourney and how to harness the speed and power of AI in your art department.

Attendees will be required to bring their own laptops with the latest version of Photoshop installed as well as a working account with Midjourney. As this is not a basic-level class, all attendees should have a solid understanding of these software platforms.

The sessions will be taught and proctored by industry veterans Dan “Dot-Tone” Campbell, J.J. McCampbell, and Marshall Atkinson, who together offer nearly 100 years of experience in the industry. “If your art department needs help reducing time, increasing creativity and developing simulated process separation skills, this is the one class that your team cannot miss,” Atkinson says.

The event will kick off on Friday, August 9 with a networking session, providing a great opportunity to connect with fellow industry professionals. Education sessions will be held all day on Saturday, August 10, followed by a “celebration dinner.” Registration fees include the cost of the Friday networking event, as well as breakfast, lunch and dinner Saturday.
