Ages: 18 and older, or 14-17 with a parent or guardian present
What to bring: No special equipment is required, but if you have a computer with a Photoshop license, you are welcome to bring it.
About the Instructor: Micah studied art, photography and design at the Corcoran College of Art and Design in Washington D.C., where he was born and raised, and has worked with Photoshop for over 20 years. His current goal is to use 3D digital art, 2D rendering, photo manipulation, and video for both social commentary and to explore new realities just slightly askew of this one with multimedia gallery shows and books.
