Join us for instruction and workshop for Visual artists, especially Filmmakers, Videographers, and others that need the ability to manipulate and process images. No procedures for print work will be taught, but any beginner or casual user of Photoshop will benefit from the class.
Adobe® Photoshop® for Beginners
Stop fooling around. Learn to the most creative tool ever from a pro!
Award-winning visual effects artist Ed Batres, known for his work on films like Babe, Beetlejuice, Space Jam and others, will personally teach you the Photoshop essentials you need to start creating beautiful visual projects.
You’ll learn easy image editing and Ed’s secret tips to avoid the frustration that stalls most beginners.
