Here’s what one of the students had to say about the class:

Elody was extremely knowledgeable on Photoshop and was able to answer all my questions throughout both days.  I also thought the manner in which she presented the material was spot on for someone learning how to use Photoshop for the first time…

  I also appreciated the amount of hands-on computer time which was extremely helpful for learning the material. ..   The handouts were useful….  The exercises were also very helpful .starting with doing some basic things and working our way up to more challenging things …

 The classroom setting was great. A very quiet setting, so it was easy to focus and concentrate on learning the material.  I really enjoyed the class ,and it met my expectations for an introduction to Photoshop and learning the basics.
