Wine & (MS) Paint

Tuesday, January 10, 2017 • 6:00pm–8:30pm

ATD-Boston will start off the New Year with another fun evening by having our first ever Wine & (MS) Paint. You may be familiar with the traditional Wine & Paint events, but ATD-Boston is adding an enlightening twist to that event by transforming the “Paint” component to “Graphic Design.” That means that you will get guidance on the essentials of graphic design, have an opportunity for hands-on practice with your new graphic skills, and you WILL NOT be subject to the possibility of paint stains on your clothing at the end of the night!

We were lucky enough to secure two classrooms full of workstations at New Horizons Computer Learning Centers in Waltham for the hands-on workshop – plus a kitchen area where our wine sommelier will be serving wine tastings and filling you full of wine talk. More specifically:

  • Graphic Design 101: Matt Farina will demonstrate some basic principles of graphic design, show a few very cool tricks & tips, and then let you free form with your new skills. Featured tools will include MS Paint (of course – it’s a Wine & Paint night!), PowerPoint, Adobe Illustrator, and Photoshop.
  • Copyrights 101: Naomi Pariseault will walk through her Copyright or Copywrong presentation from Learning Solutions 2016, helping you to get a good night’s sleep after downloading a boatload of images from the Internet.
  • Wine 101: Our “Mystery Sommelier” will serve a tasty sampling of wines – and answer any & all wine challenge questions!

Hope you can come to join the fun. See you there!
