This class aims to start an understanding of the basics of using a powerful free graphic editor similar to Photoshop.
Useful for both editing photos and creating designs for print or digital needs, GIMP (GNU Image Manipulation Program) is an open-source free software with lots of third party plugin tools and helpful online documents for various editing techniques. GIMP can be used for minor editing or major design projects.
The goal of this class is to gain a knowledge of the fundamentals of operation – canvas, layers, selection tools, cropping and scaling tools, coloring techniques, and filters.
Space is limited to 12 participants. Registration for teens entering 8th – 12th grade begins Monday July 14 9:30 am.
Registration for adults begins Monday July 21 9:30 am.
