Photoshop Basics

Tu/Th 7pm to 9pm

We will go through the basic tools in Photoshop and see how they can be useful to your particular needs. Terms like masking, overlay, marquee and high pass will make a lot more sense after this course. You'll be able to fix the color of a photo, create a web friendly image, swap heads with your dog for your next (really weird) holiday card and see why photoshop is basically magic.

Illustrator Basics

Tu/Th 7pm to 9pm
Mar 3 – Mar 19

Most logos are created using Illustrator because vector art is a thing of beauty. You are able to size artwork up or down and it will not lose resolution. Also, as the name implies, it can be used to create illustrations. The course will focus on the tools you need to create your own vector art. You'll learn how to use layers, draw shapes using the bezier tool, and even how to give it "photoshop" type effects.
