WORKSHOPS

Workshops are offered for students who prefer more time to devote to a subject than a class setting provides. The workshops would be offered during the week at a time and location to be determined. A minimum of 4 students at $6 per hour each is all we need. The screen printing workshops are limited to 4 students. If more wish to sign up, additional workshops will be scheduled.

The workshops are 3-hour blocks.  Some workshops would be multiple blocks. A series would be offered and the student could take one or all of the sessions.

Trimble SketchUp

This session covers the wonderful 3-d computer program, Trimble SketchUp. Students will download the free program onto their laptops at home.

In the course of learning the program they will also name files, create folders, and use the mouse.  Ideally this would be a 3-block workshop. A minimum of 4 students needed. Parents welcome.
