Image Manipulation Monster Making Challenge Showcase

Monday, June 1, 2020 - 6:00pm to 7:00pm

This will be a showcase of various "monsters" created using GIMP. We will share the final image that participants create and they will have the opportunity to share what they learned and what their create muse was. 


The challenge is intended to inspire people to learn GIMP, a free open source image manipulation program. No previous experience is required. Learn how to use image modification tools with a fun project.
