Heard a lot about Photoshop and other Adobe creative software, think it could be useful but not sure where to start or which programs to use?

In this four-session course guided by arts educator Alex Harwood, dip your toes in four of the most commonly used Adobe programs and discover what they have to offer.

Taking you through a guided personal project around the theme of personal & family histories, we’ll introduce you to the basics of four core programs so that you can get to grips with what each is used for and can do.


Turf Studios, 39-40 Keeley Road, Croydon CR0 1TF


You’ll need to:

– Bring your own laptop.

– Install Adobe’s free trial version of the software prior to the first session (we’ll send you instructions).

– Bring along some visual and audio materials available on your laptop to use in the sessions – photographs, art works, video, music etc.

Don’t worry, we’ll send full details of all the above in good time ahead of the first session.
