RMCAD, 1600 Pierce St, Lakewood, CO 80214
Taught by Jeannette Stutzman

Learn to Prepare Your Show Entries & a Lot More!

  • Photography vs Scanning your Artwork; image quality
  • What is Resolution? DPI vs PPI and how that relates for print and web...
  • What are Pixels?
  • What does it mean when someone says to make an image 1024 px wide?
  • What is a jpg? Understanding quality vs compression...
  • File Naming and File Formats
  • What happens if I re-save jpg files?
  • RGB vs. CMYK
  • Intro to Color Adjustments

Most juried shows are now using services such as Online Juried Shows or Zapplication to handle entries. They each have specific requirements for the type and size of files you send and may disqualify entries that do not meet those requirements.

Just in time for our 2019 Member Show and Mile High National Show, Jeannette will expertly and kindly walk us through the process, with demos and with individual help.

This time we'll be in a RMCAD computer lab and you are welcome to use one of their computers or you can bring your laptop if you have one and prefer to be using your own computer. Also please bring a prospectus or two and some photos of your art to work with. We'll be using a free online photo editor (using WiFi) or you can use Photoshop or Elements if that's what you use/have on your computer. 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. RMCAD sits on an aquifer and there are fresh water dispensers in the hallways but bring a bottle to fill. Water or other beverages need to be in cups with lids or screw on caps.

Cost is $50.00 (plus $2 for PayPal processing fees)
