We will look at the many ways Adobe Photoshop enables users to manipulate and create unique and original images. Some of the functions we will cover include layers, color correction, photomerge, automation, large format printing, color replacement, plus much more. We will also look at some of the new features that CS5, Bridge, and Lightroom 3 have to offer. Each class will include an instructional demo and time to work on projects using techniques discussed in class. Several out-of-class assignments will be given as a way to practice skills. We will have group critiques on these assignments so you can receive feedback on your work. This class is designed for beginner students, but more experienced students who are looking to brush up their skills are welcome. It is recommended that you have at least Photoshop CS4 or CS5 at home to work on outof- class assignments. You will also need your own USB drive and paper for this class.

What is a web page and how do I get one? How does a web designer/developer get the website to look the way it does? Join us for a fun and creative approach to understanding web site development, in a non-coding, artistic, and relaxed environment. We will start with the fundamentals of good web design – and learn how the user views your information and social media posts. From there we will try some ‘hands-on’ page design using Adobe Dreamweaver. This class is great for a beginner as well as for the more advanced learner as we’ll also delve into interactivity and marketing.
