Intermediate Photoshop

Dig deeper into Photoshop’s capabilities and features. Not only will you become more adept at the different tools but you will use your own photos to create scenes and scenarios typically only found in ones imagination.

Video Storytelling

The ubiquity of the video and the global stage of online hosting sites give the power of the moving image to the masses. Learn cinematic styles, how to edit audio and video, and use special effects to tell a story with motion and sound.

Experiments in Digital Photography

Sculpt light. Re-color the world. Magnify. Reduce. Blur. Sharpen. Capture. Release. Record a decisive moment or make one. This class explores techniques in using the digital camera as a tool in visual experimentation.


The art of storytelling is a crucial skill. Learn about plot development, story and character arcs, telling stories not only in multiple installments, but in multiple mediums (blogs, point of view, transitions, voice, persuasion).

Short & Sweet

Headlines, web banners, outdoor boards, tag lines, and Twitter posts all require precision and a certain turn of phrase. You’ll learn to be a writer of few words that carry a big message and prove print is not dead.

Vector Imaging

Adobe Illustrator is the primary application in Creative Cloud for illustrating, creating logos, designing with type, and creating layouts that range from the web to traditional media like billboards, posters and print ads.
