WHERE TO GO

At­tend the open­ing re­cep­tion on July 13 from 6-9 p.m. for “Phan­tasy Hand” and the re­lease party for Heads Mag­a­zine #7. Phan­tasy Hand fea­tures 13 artists from around the re­gion fo­cus­ing on draw­ing – a tech­nique that takes many dif­fer­ent forms in our dig­i­tal age. The ex­hi­bi­tion is cu­rated by Ja­son Wright, pub­lisher of Heads Mag­a­zine, an exhi- bi­tion in the form of a quar­terly pub­li­ca­tion, cu­rated by word-of­mouth in­vi­ta­tions from cu­ra­tors and con­trib­u­tors. Is­sue #7 fea­tures all of the artists in “Phan­tasy Hand” and will be avail­able at Goodyear Arts at Camp North End through­out the ex­hi­bi­tion.

WHAT TO DO

De­velop your de­sign skills at a Skil­lPop class fo­cused around Adobe InDe­sign. Graphic de­signer Han­nah Maschoff of Golden Rod De­sign Co. will teach the fun­da­men­tals of the pro­gram so you can cre­ate your own pro­mo­tional print ma­te­ri­als us­ing type, imagery, and cus­tom graph­ics. Ad­vance reg­is­tra­tion is re­quired for the class, with lim­ited seat­ing. You will need to bring your lap­top with Adobe InDe­sign in­stalled. If you don’t have the soft­ware, down­load the free seven-day trial via Adobe’s web­site. The class takes place at Hygge Cowork­ing 6:30-8:30 p.m. July 11.

WHO TO MEET

Cap­ture pho­tos with your cam­era (or cam­era phone) 5-7 p.m. July 12 while on a group photo walk led by Los An­ge­les­based pho­tog­ra­pher and film di­rec­tor Frankhave­mercy. The hope is that be­ing with this cre­ative artist in a unique lo­cale will help you tune in to – and thus cap­ture pho­to­graph­i­cally – new things in your en­vi­ron­ment. The walk will be held at Camp North End (1824
