The classroom computers have Photoshop installed and all are online. Jeannette will be using a projector for the demos.

Please arrive between 10am (when they open) and 10:20 to set settled and setup. Class will start at 10:30am. Demo and discussion will be from 10:30-12:30 and individual help from 12:30-2:00. There will be demos and handouts to follow as well as Q&A.

Jeannette is a full-time graphic designer with over 30 years of experience in design as well as 15 years experience teaching computer basics, page layout, photoshop, computer illustration and visual design at Rocky Mountain College of Art & Design (RMCAD).

Bring a snack or bag lunch. No food is allowed in the computer labs but we can take a short break at lunch time. No food vendors will be open on campus so please bring what you need.
