14 participants max.

$50 per person paid by check to Ella Carlson. Please email Ellen Kawadler at to register or with any questions.

This will be a full-day hands-on INTERMEDIATE PHOTOSHOP WORKSHOP.  You should be very familiar with layers, selections, and masking to take this.** You will need your laptops with Photoshop CC installed.

She is requesting that you send her 1-2 layered.psd files (with all the layers intact) by May 1st.  (Will provide a link to upload files at a later date)  Also send any questions along with your files. If you have any particular topics you would like to see her cover, please include these as well. Ella will work through the images and create a class addressing the things she sees in each file.  Hopefully this will make the class more specific to the needs of the participants. Ella plans on providing us with a couple of brush sets and a special take home perk!

**if you consider yourself a BEGINNER, she has a course for you on May 2nd. Click this link for more info.
