- Digital Images for Web and Portfolio - Instructors: Shepherd Alligood and David Hellams.

- Printmaking - Instructor: Brady Haston. This workshop will cover the basics of polyester lithography. Participants will learn how to create hand drawn and photomechanical images. Other topics to be covered are printing with color and simple registration techniques.
