    Advanced Skill Building in EQ8

    With Barb Vlack

    Full day class
    Apr 05, 2019, 9:00am - 4:00pm
    Advanced

    An Advanced student can handle fast-paced instruction, is able to move among the EQ8 worktables with ease, is ready to learn the more complex design techniques, and is comfortable with the general uses of his/her computer. These students should have taken previous EQ Academy intermediate classes (or have taken similar classes at other venues). Advanced classes are not for beginners. We would not want you to fall behind.

    Drawing Pieced Blocks in EQ8

    With Barb Vlack

    Half day class
    Apr 06, 2019, 9:00am - 12:00pm
    Beginner

    Beginner:

    A beginner student would be someone who is very new to using EQ8 software. Some beginners have never opened the software, while others have just dabbled. Beginner classes will be taught as if the students are all starting from scratch with EQ8. These slower-paced classes will help all students keep up with the lessons. Steps and terminology will be repeated often to help students connect concepts and skills together.
