Workshop Blog : http://rpi-digitalarch.blogspot.com/ or http://www.kinch-sessions.com/

Tutorials will be posted to the blog the following week.  Students are also encouraged to submit examples of their work from the sessions for publication.

All sessions to be held in Digital Futures Lab (Greene Building) from 7-9pm unless otherwise noted.
Workshops will build on work done during previous sessions within a section.
Supplemental materials will also be provided to allow for sessions to be taken individually.
