Colleen Spencer Henderson offers a series of digital workshops for those interested in learning Photoshop and digital printing.  They are taught out of her home/studio in Bethesda, MD. 

Classes are small, limited to six students, and geared for both the novice and intermediate users.  While Photoshop is not hard to learn, its many options can make it overwhelming at times.  Hands on access to Photoshop, along with small class sizes, contribute positively to the learning process.   

The following classes are offered in the Fall, 2004
