Explore the power of photography with new insight.

There are no available registration dates at this time.

NOTE: This Course will be Held in an Online Format using the Zoom Platform.

Starts July 6th. See full schedule below.

With the proliferation of digital cameras and iPhones, we all take a lot of pictures. This constant recording with our camera sometimes prevents us from seeing. This class will hone participants’ observation skills and explore the power of photography with new insight. It will be a boot camp in artistic thinking.

In this immersive workshop students will learn to express their vision through online group activities, observation exercises and critiques.  Mondays will include photography assignments and group discussions. Wednesdays and Thursdays each week will consist of individual critiques and peer reviews. The course is intended both for people who have a creative practice and those who are new to photography. Students will not only leave with a portfolio of photographs but also with a new set of visual literacy skills that can be applied to all aspects of life.
