This introductory course familiarizes students with the editing capabilities of Adobe Photoshop . Lessons will cover how to use the Adobe Photoshop interface and access its expansive set of features to create book cover design, photo collages, social media postings, flyers and professional collateral. Understanding of proper project sizes, layout standards, and file formats will be the foundation of this fun but challenging course. All projects will be hands-on and produce projects that will make great additions to any design portfolio.

Instructor – Miranda Whitley
My name is Miranda Whitley, and I am a graphic designer with a passion for teaching. I was introduced to graphic design 10 years ago using the very same curriculum I will be teaching to you in these classes. Since then I have taken every opportunity to expand my knowledge of graphic design as technology evolves. My specialty in graphic design is logo design, packaging design, and website creation.
I am very excited to offer these classes to you so that I can share my love for graphic design and hopefully inspire some of you to pursue it as well.
