Single Schedule

Days One through Three “Software” sessions

NOTE: Software sessions are three days long

To give students enough time to work with software during “work hours” in the middle of the day, each of the software sessions is three days long. Students should not register for more than one software session. Students should reserve at least three hours from the middle of each the three days to work on projects and complete other software training.


These sessions will train students on Adobe software such as Premiere, InDesign,  and Photoshop. We will add one more software session to be named later! The sessions will meet twice each day for Zoom “huddles”: once at the start of the day to set goals for the day and once at the end of the day to review projects from the day and provide critiques. Additional instruction will happen throughout the day using web videos.

Zoom sessions will be a 45-minute block in the morning each day plus another meeting at the end of the day for 15 minutes — on three consecutive days
