Mac OS or Windows
All of our computers can run your operating system of choice. No need to undo years of muscle memory.
Small class sizes
Since we strictly limit class size, you will not be just another head to count, but rather a learner with whom we're communicating and for whom we're customizing our content. Do you see the picture of our classroom? That's it. One of those cozy seats is for you.
Carefully crafted curricula
Constantly updated and never canned. No mass-produced workbooks geared for the lowest common denominator. Instead, each class exercise is evaluated and tweaked to be effective and often fun.
We teach Adobe Creative software, but also classes in photographic workflows, and several on "the basics" to get you started in web or desktop publishing. Our luxuriously small class sizes allow us adapt a course on the fly to accommodate that day's attendees. We teach people, not workstations.
Super-comfortable facility
From the lighting to the full kitchen; from your choice of operating system to the expansive deck for catching your breath, you'll feel right at home while you learn. Students even ask us where they can buy our chairs! And we're easily accessible from anywhere in the Seattle region.
Adobe Certified Instructors
Luminous Works classes focusing on Adobe software are taught by Adobe Certified Instructors; those who've both mastered the applications they teach, passing rigorous exams to prove it, and who demonstrate their teaching skills by becoming Certified Technical Trainers. They're also graded by you after every class.
We've all encountered experts who can't impart their knowledge. That isn't the case here.

Your classroom is so refreshing just in terms of layout, design, and comfort. I have been to places like █████ that feel like you are in a jail cell. This felt luxurious, I appreciated the nice surroundings and artwork very much! :)
