The Fort Worth Library wants to give your hobby and/or career a boost! As my daddy used to say, “It’s a good day when you learn something.” Look forward to many good days as you improve your computer technology skills by attending free classes in Adobe Photoshop and Web Development.
Taught by University of Texas at Arlington instructors, these courses provide solid foundations in the subject matter and put you on the path toward certification. Even if you don’t want to work toward certification, you probably do want to be more computer savvy.
Classes take place at the eSkills Library & Job Center, 2800 Stark St., Fort Worth, TX 76112. The center is located five blocks west of East Loop 820 at the intersection of East Lancaster and Stark–behind Bank of America. It is served by the SPUR bus via the Intermodel Transportation Center (ITC).
