UCF’s Ad Club will be holding “Adobe 101” workshops every semester in order to teach the fundamentals of Photoshop and InDesign.
“In our industry, a basic knowledge of desktop publishing is a huge plus to potential employers,” Ad Club president Bailey Morris said. “It will definitely spice up a resume.”
The prices do range depending on whether one is a UCF student, alumnus or non-UCF student. Students, with a valid UCF ID, would register and pay $50, UCF alumni would pay $75 and a non-UCF student would pay $100. These prices include lunch. If one has any dietary issues they could contact the club and the club will try to accommodate them.
If one decides to sign up for the workshop, it is important to know that no prior knowledge is necessary.
“By the end of the workshop, [those that have signed up] will have an introductory understanding of how to create collateral such as fliers, newsletters, tickets, posters, and more,” Morris said.
Also, computers will be provided in the workshop area with the software already installed, so one doesn’t have to worry about whether or not they need to bring any equipment. The workshop is held in the Nicholson School of Communication, Room 211a.
The deadline to sign up and pay is Jan. 31 for the Spring 2015 workshop. Saturday, Feb. 7 is already filled up, so the remaining workshop for the semester will be held Sunday, Feb. 8 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. with a one-hour lunch break. Right now the idea of a second workshop this semester is possible; it depends on how many more students sign up for the Sunday workshop.
