Wear your college duds...
Note for all students: Part of what is special about being a student at CCE is our special dress Wednesday program. On alternating Wednesdays, we have College Shirt Day or Professional Dress. It is such a fun part of what makes us a bit different, and if you will participate, you will get compliments around here! I like to wear my college shirts, and I am far beyond college age! It is fun for me to see the schools that you are interested in (or are visiting) by what shirt you wear. Next week, we can dress like young professionals in our field, and that is also fun. Be a participator.

REMEMBER: Friday is a Teacher Training Day, and next Monday is a School Holiday. Students have a 4 day week both this week and next week.

AM CLASS: Since all of you are finished with your photo shoot, step one is to retouch your photo to be sure that it is high quality. Check with your mentor if there are questions. Here are a whole bunch of articles and tutorials on how to do that retouch. Some information is new, but most are a re-hash of what we learned in the first two weeks of class. http://www.graphic-design.com/photoshop/food_retouching?page=0,0
