Let’s get digital! This is a unique opportunity to get one on one help from the pros (or at least a couple of artists who know more than you do about the computer). Bring your questions about re-sizing images, applying online, creating an e-newsletter, starting a website and more. Each “lab technician” will be available just for you in 20 minute time slots. First come, first served.
