Workshops: Behance and Cargo

Friday, December 3, 10:30am - 12:30 (canceled)
Sunday, December 5, 2:30pm - 4:30pm (SUNDAY only, room 313 -- photo lab)

Because many of you want to start getting your work online we will have a couple of workshops before the Holiday break. I think you all can figure it out on your own but that it just gets pushed out because of all your other work.

So Mark your Calendars and SHOW up. I the time we are together you will get a good start and then I know you will be self-driven to finish.

1) Do not worry if you don't have your work shot, you can always shoot it later and replace the images.
2) BRING at least 3 projects: digital files or pdfs and project descriptions.
3) Sign up for a account BEFORE, need it for social networking
4) Sign up for a Cargo account BEFORE, easly/free online portfolio site

please email Andrea if you plan to attend.
