Painters and photographers might be interested in two upcoming noncredit classes at the Manassas Campus of Northern Virginia Community College.

Class discussions and critiques will help students improve. Instructor Sunny Lee has extensive experience teaching students of all ages. The class fee is $144 and a supply list will be discussed at the first session. “Aspiring Painters Workshop” will meet on Saturday mornings starting July 12 and ending Aug. 16.

Students will learn to process raw images, make adjustments using layers, retouch, sharpen and prepare photos for printing. Instructor Andy Jezioro is the president of the Manassas Warrenton Camera Club. “Adobe Photoshop for Photographers” will meet for five sessions on Tuesday and Thursday evenings beginning July 15.
