Although it’s possible to do some page layout in programs like Microsoft Word, there is only one application that is used by the majority of industries for everything from business cards, to brochures, to magazines and books. Adobe InDesign works seamlessly with the rest of the Creative Suite, so this is the program to use if you are preparing work for print or electronic publishing. We will learn about good print design, typography, using images in your layouts, and publishing standards. Starting with one page design, we’ll look at two-sided brochures and multi-page documents. We will learn about the tools at your disposal to create digital documents as well as print ready work. You will also learn how to optimize your files so that they are significantly smaller, saving you storage space and allowing you to distribute them more efficiently. Please let us know when you register if you are bringing in your own laptop. Participants using the lab’s computers should have a rudimentary understanding

Once in a while a new computer program comes out that is both relatively easy to learn and has the power to make a tremendous change in what we can accomplish. Lightroom is such a program for casual, amateur and professional photographers. It is tailored to the needs of the photographer, handling their workflow needs from the time they attach their camera or memory card to the computer through sorting, organizing, editing, preparing for printing, slide shows and web publishing. After covering important concepts of “workflow” (everything that you do from when you take the picture till you have the desired result), we will demonstrate key features of Lightroom. You can download a trial version of the software to use during the class. Just watch and take notes or bring your Mac or Windows laptop to class and “play along”. You will find

No CAD experience necessary, but those with prior CAD experience will learn how to bring their digital files into a machining (CAM) software and create cutting files for the ShopBot CNC to machine. $10 materials fee for first project, paid to instructor at first class meeting; other material fees will be dependent upon size

We’ll observe and identify elements of composition: shape, line and form, in order to take the subject from reality towards abstraction in three steps. Observing your subject and surrounding space you can identify what is essential to you and therefore emphasize important elements to produce effective work. Each student can choose the degree of reality preferred by emphasizing line, shape, or form. We begin the process with a black and white sketch and move to color with pastel, watercolors or acrylics (your choice). During each class, we’ll starting by analyzing what we see, then moving on to select what we want to emphasize or eliminate. Students have the option of working on a single picture or moving to another to produce a series. We’ll study abstraction in the 20th and 21st centuries to understand how artists have handled similar problems in the past. Tuition includes models’ fees. Obtain materials list at The ArtsCenter front desk, prior to first class.

1033. EXPLORING ABSTRACT ART (DRAWING AND PAINTING) cert. course The main difference between representational and non-representational art is that, in the latter, we draw from inner (subjective) vision instead of outer (objective) vision. “Abstract” art includes the entire range between the two. The primary focus of the class is to access that inner vision and develop it. To do this effectively, one must be free of obstacles to this “creative source.” Using charcoal and tempera paint, our method (here comes the fun part!) is to practice the intuitive, right-brain oriented exercises—free of logic, labels, and judgment—that were created by early abstract artists.There will also be a bit of history, some discussion, and plenty of slides of some of the greats, for inspiration! With practice, students will begin to form their own personal “language” of shape, line, symbol and color, while also exploring basic drawing elements and composition. Beginners are welcome, as well as established artists who desire to deepen their art-making experience. Repeat students welcomed, too! $5 materials fee, due to instructor at first class. The instructor will discuss fur-

ther materials during the first class.

Topics to be considered will include Composition, The Tone and Key of color relationships, color analysis and theory and paint handling.

MANUAL EXPOSURE PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOP —at The Century Center Do you have a digital SLR and want to move beyond photographing in an automatic or semi-automatic mode, like “P” or aperture priority?

We will decide as a group where we are meeting, perhaps at an area garden or woodlands. After reviewing why and how you might want to shoot in manual mode and arming you with strategies for quickly exposing for a photograph the way you want it to look, you will get to practice and get feedback.

FOOD FOR LIFE: KIDS HEALTH - THE POWER OF FOOD FOR A HEALTHY START—at the Century Center Over the past three decades, childhood obesity rates in America have tripled, and today, nearly one in three children in the United States is overweight or obese.

This nutrition and cooking program for type 2 diabetes prevention and treatment was developed by the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine. It is taught as an eight-week class; we hope to bring the class to Carrboro soon, but are offering a 1-class overview this session. In this introduction, we discuss how foods fight diabetes. There are several handouts, a 40-minute lesson on DVD about the science behind and practical aspects of adopting a low-fat whole-foods, lowglycemic index diet, one that is within the 2011 guidelines of the American Diabetes Association. We end with a cooking demonstration and sampling. $8 for materials, paid to instructor at first class. Please note: This class takes place at the Century Center at the intersection of Weaver and Greensboro Streets in Carrboro. Cosponsored with Carrboro Recreation and Parks Department
