After nine hours of honing shutter skills, experimenting with professional lighting equipment, or illustrating online images, students are given five hours of online instruction to finish on their own time. Upon completion of each course, they receive e-certificates and a signed headshot of themselves. Check out the calendar for upcoming class dates.
Photo Art Studio
The Adobe- and Microsoft-certified instructors at Photo Art Studio prepare pupils for careers in graphic design, web development, and photography during 14-hour certification programs. The digital photography course drills novices in handling and cleaning their cameras, regulating light, and convincing jumping beans to hold still for track-team portraits. During Adobe Photoshop classes, students survey the program's myriad manipulation and touch-up options by applying such flourishes as modified hues and formatted text over their own compositions. Other courses in software such as Adobe Flash and Dreamweaver focus on animation, image design, and web development respectively. The studio also hosts in-depth classes on Microsoft Office software to instill practical administrative skills.
