Software Instruction

It takes more than knowing how to use software to be a great teacher. It involves understanding the students' needs, and bringing years of professional experience to the classroom in a clear and enjoyable way.

Some of the world's leading companies and institutions have benefited from personal on-site instruction and/or lectures by Rick Penn-Kraus. These include Harvard-Westlake, CBS, Vans, Amgen, Chapman University, the Peace Corps, and many, many others over the last 10 years.

Instruction has focused on Adobe InDesign, Photoshop and Illustrator, in addition to Excel, PowerPoint, and other programs. Rick also teaches photography, guitar, and started his own comic book cartooning class for elementary school children.
