Class meets Wednesday 7-9pm ET – May 5th, 12th, 19th, 26th and a reunion session June 23rd
+ 1:1 sessions Friday morning May 21st and 28th (See Full Schedule Below)

The last year has been a challenge to photographers used to going out and using the camera to engage with the world. As there is a light at the end of the tunnel, and we will soon be able to return to normal, how can we reinvigorate our creative practice?

In this class, we will have photographic exercises in artistic thinking and use photography (with social distance) to connect to the world around us. There are short, daily Photo assignments of about 20 minutes. Through these exercises and the examination of work by fine art photographers, each student will formulate a project that connects them with their world. Students will embrace their creative passions to create a body of work by the end of the class.

Whether you already have a creative practice or are new to photography, you leave with a portfolio of images and a deeper understanding of the photographic medium as a means of social connection.


The class will meet each Wednesday for 4 weeks on May 5th, 12th, 19th, 26th from 7-9 PM ET and then one month later for a reunion session on June 23rd. Each student will get a 15 minute one on one on Friday mornings May 21 and May 28 between 10-1pm or scheduled individually with the instructor.

**Note: Students should have Adobe Lightroom CC.
