Mac Classes - March 2013
March is here; there's (literally) light at the end of the tunnel!! I've been loving how much snow we've been getting, but I sure am ready for it to warm up a bit, aren't you? On to the class news for this month...
Class list for March 2013:
Sat., March 9th, from 10 a.m. to noon: iPhoto; Ridgway Town Hall
Sat., March 23rd, from 10 a.m. to noon: Pages; Ridgway Town Hall
Wed., March 20th from 5-7 p.m.: FREE iPad/iPhone Overview; Ridgway Library
Read on for the details...
First off, on Saturday, March 9th, from 10 a.m. to noon, I will once again be offering my in-depth class on iPhoto. Come learn everything there is to know about Apple's powerful digital image organization/editing program. Is it finally time to get your photo library under control, with the added bonus of learning how easy (and fun) the process can be? Well then, this is the class for you! I will primarily cover the latest version (iPhoto '11) but can touch on the previous ('09) version when necessary. Cost for this class is $20, and it will be held at the Ridgway Town Hall. No sign-up necessary, and it's open to drop-ins, so come if you can!
Then, on Saturday, March 23rd, from 10 a.m. to noon, I'm offering my comprehensive class on Apple's Pages program. In this class you will learn how to master their formidable word-processing/page layout program, which just happens to be a good deal more user-friendly (and fun to use) than Microsoft Word! This class is also $20, also at the Ridgway Town Hall. No sign-up necessary, as above; don't miss it!
Note, this month's Library class (iPad/iPhone version) will NOT be held on the usual last-Wednesday-of-the-month. This month only, it will take place on the third Wednesday (March 20th). Details below...
I'm continuing to alternate monthly between the Mac OS X Overview and a iPad/iPhone Overview! So, this month we're back to the FREE iPad/iPhone Overview on Wednesday, March 20th from 5-7 p.m. The Mac overview classes are always held in the computer lab at the Ridgway Library, and the iPad/iPhone overview is held in the small meeting room near the library entrance. There are eight seats available for the Mac overview, and 12 for the iPad/iPhone version; the Library has asked that I handle the sign ups, so give me a call at 970-417-8434 (or drop me an email) if you'd like to attend. (Be aware that first-timers take priority over anyone who has taken the class before, but there are often openings for repeaters).
For the iPad/iPhone Overview, you'll need to bring your own device. For the Mac Overview, there are six Macs in the computer lab, so only two of the eight attendees need their own laptops. This class is beginner-oriented, but we cover some different things every month; repeat attendees are encouraged (when there's room)!
Take care everyone, and have a great month!!
