Essential Photoshop for Kids
This summer, help your children learn the most popular and useful tool for graphic design, Adobe Photoshop. To be sure, students use graphics tools to enhance their school work; the science poster, the history presentation, the math project and more. And there is no software more often used and more helpful for project requirements as well as personal hobbies (e.g. photography) as Adobe Photoshop!
This workshop is for kids, 10–15 yrs old. Older teens can still attend the workshop if they want to, or choose to attend our Adobe Photoshop CS5 Basics class.

Who should attend
Young people from 10–15 yrs old, who want to learn new computer tools and explore what they can do with these new tools.
For kids who've taken our Photography for the Young at Art workshop, this Photoshop class will give them more creative options.
What to bring
There is nothing to bring to the workshop, except an “open” attitude to learning. PCCI will provide the computer workstation, complete with software and source materials (for hands-on work), for each participant. It is of course recommended, that the young participant has access to a computer and the necessary software, at home, in order to apply the lessons learned in the workshop.
