Are you looking for an easy, engaging way to tell your family stories? In this hands-on workshop, participants will learn how to take their family history materials such as photos, maps, documents or video clips to create a video (with music and commentary) using the free program Adobe Spark. Participants are asked to bring materials with them on a USB key (thumb drive) to use in preparing their own video. In the first week we’ll cover the basics of creating your video; the second week we’ll get into more advanced features and we’ll include time to trouble-shoot your specific video. To save time, please create an Adobe account (it’s free) before the first class.
