Digital Photography 101

digital photo

Whether you are a beginner, intermediate, or advanced photographer, capture the beauty of spring as you expand your knowledge of your digital camera functions beyond auto point & shoot settings through instruction in the foundations of manual operations covering aperture, shutter, film speed, and more. Explore portraiture, still-life, and nature up-close and at a distance using natural, flash, and studio lighting.

Materials fee will be applied to printing medium scale photos for critique and display.

Students are required to supply their own camera; your camera must have a full manual mode, with aperture, shutter, and ISO controls.

Portrait Sculpting


Work in earthenware clay to explore the intricacies of the face organically, sculpting a full face by the end of the four week class. Students can choose to base their works on a live model or work with mirrors for a self-portrait approach. Completed sculptures will be fired and non-ceramic finishes investigated.
