Open House December 10, 2005

The Montgomery College Communications Arts Technologies Department is extending a special invitation to members of the Washington Apple Pi and other Macintosh computer enthusiasts to attend an Open House from 10 am to noon on Saturday, Dec 10th. The event will be held in the CAT department's state of the art computer laboratory in Room 145 of the Technical Center building on Montgomery College's Rockville Campus. Professors Ed Riggs, Patricia Johannsen, and other members of the CAT faculty and staff will be on hand to discuss the curricula that the Department offers leading to Associate Degrees and certificates in various facets of computer graphics illustration and design. This event is designed to showcase the courses offered by the CAT department's Advertising Arts and Photography units.

The CAT Department has arranged for representatives of the Business units from the Montgomery Mall and Bethesda Row Apple Stores to be on hand to demonstrate and discuss Apple's new Aperture program. There will also be a demonstration of the Hasselblad camera back with FireWire interface.

Light refreshment will be provided starting at 9:30. Early arrivers are strongly encourage to look at the works of student and faculty artists on display in the lab. Space is somewhat limited, so be sure to arrive early.

The courses offered by this acclaimed department are available at a very reasonable cost and provide a solid foundation for people seeking careers in the visual arts as well as people seeking self-enrichment in photography, desktop publishing, and other aspects of image production. The training employs dual-processor Power Macintosh G5 computers in modern, well-equipped laboratories.
