What we're about

Going forward we will be hosting all of our meetings online, so it won't look anything like the picture above. We understand that these are challenging times for everyone, and we’d like to continue to offer a place where creative pros and newbies alike can come together to learn new techniques, exchange ideas, and get help with solving problems. Our meetings will continue to involve educational presentations and collaborative support, to keep you up to speed with developments in multimedia, web technology, and the digital arts. Future topics will include programs on the Adobe Creative Suite, including Adobe After Effects, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, and more. Our two Adobe User Groups, the Digital Media Creatives and the DV/After Effects Abuser Group, will join together in joint meetings every 4th Wednesday of the month.

Over the years our members have included illustrators, animators, videographers, designers, web developers, voice over talent, photographers, and others. Come join us online and have some fun while you learn!
