CooperHouse Digital Creative Workshop

September 23 @ 9:00 am - September 24 @ 5:00 pm

EVERYONE can design, and probably should. Our goal is to teach everyone to communicate more clearly and confidently with visual graphics. If you’ve ever had to design anything, or been given some design assets and are unsure how to implement them, this workshop is just for you.

This class will teach you what you need to know about creating (and appreciating) great design. Adobe Illustrator & Photoshop are powerful tools, but we will give you the skills to navigate these programs confidently. More importantly, we’ll teach you the process for taking an idea from a picture in your mind to a finished product. We’ll give you a hint: it’s not JUST the software that makes a great design.

Register for this workshop and join us in September for a game-changing weekend for your small business.
