In the beginner’s class, pupils tote their own digital point-and-shoot or DSLR cameras for a three-hour photo-taking tutorial, during which they'll fine tune compositional skills by framing shots of surrounding flowers and park-goers. They'll also learn six photo-improving strategies such as how to frame a shot, how to shoot in manual mode, and how to convince reclusive dragons to strike poses.

During the two-hour Photoshop Elements session, students learn the programs various functions, from layers and montages to placing a filter over images.

Students can work alongside the presentation of the Photoshop Elements class if they bring their own Mac or PC laptop already outfitted with Photoshop Elements or Photoshop from 2010 or later, or they can follow along on the classroom screen and take notes.
