Photojournalism Night and More

A few years back, CPS instituted a series of regular Photojournalism Nights. These evenings are designed to celebrate the actual photograph: pictures that tell stories without the aid of accompanying words or Photoshop enhancements. Please bring your Photojournalistic pictures to share - and join us at 7:30 pm on March 28th! This event is free and open to all. Before Photojournalism begins, Shannon will do a short demonstratoin on how to create templates with Photoshop to create Holiday Cards.
