Upcoming Free Graphics Workshop Series in Central New Jersey

For 6 evenings in October, November, and December of 2009, BYOL (Bring Your Own Laptop) workshops will be offered in Central New Jersey (Rider University).

This is being done in order to provide learning opportunities with free graphics software. After reading this introduction, please register (for free) here to let us know you are coming.

Note that all workshops and software are FREE and that while laptops are highly suggested, they are not essential to participate.

Also, you can visit any or all of the workshops without missing anything. We will focus on a different project each time.

Everyone is welcome — students, teachers, homeschoolers, graphics enthusiasts, artists, designers, and anyone else who wants to learn something new. No previous knowledge of these tools is necessary.

This is a free series of hands-on events to promote awareness about free graphics software, such as the the GNU Image Manipulation Program, which is a free, powerful alternative to Adobe PhotoShop. There is also Inkscape, a free, sophisticated illustration program similar in functionality to Adobe Illustrator. Other software will be discussed and demonstrated as necessary.

Ism's in my opinion are not good. A person should not believe in an -ism, he should believe in himself. I quote John Lennon, "I don't believe in Beatles, I just believe in me."--Ferris Bueller, 1986
