Dates: 9/20, 9/27, 10/4, 10/11, 10/18

Cost: $125.00
5 week course • Tuesdays 6:30 – 8:00 pm
Dates: 9/17, 9/24, 10/1, 10/8, 10/15

This Beginner Adobe Photoshop 101 class is the first course in the Workshop13 Photoshop Lesson Plan. Even though this class is designed to introduce you to the program, we suggest this course to anyone who is not well-versed in Photoshop. Photoshop is an elaborate program, so it’s crucial that you learn the basics before the intricacies.

The Beginner course will introduce you to Adobe Photoshop, and the basic tools of the program. Even if you have used the software before, we still recommend this course to anyone who does not have a firm grasp on the basic functions. You will learn through actual illustration projects.

Note: Please bring a laptop with a version of Photoshop if you have one
