Digital Graphics Training
This set of interdisciplinary courses trains students in the essential vocabularies and concepts of  design focusing on the use of software such as Photoshop, Illustrator, and After Effects. Students will learn to solve design and technical issues using industry-standard, graphic software. Students will also learn industry-standard tools to build a range of projects demonstrating originality, aesthetics, and technical proficiency. Using their technical expertise, students will build  design projects that effectively integrate concept and content.

I am able to accommodate up to 3 people per class in a range of courses. All of the courses are multiple 2 hour classes. I do also Assign homework and projects that will allow you the opportunity to show off new skills learned during your tutelage. I also offer one-on-one sessions to give you access to my experience and abilities in design.
