Discover Your World With Fresh Eyes!
This workshop uses photography to engage the healing power of creativity. Today’s technology gives us all the opportunity to carry a camera with us everywhere we go. Whether you use a phone or a sophisticated camera, we will explore new ways of thinking and seeing creatively. You will be guided through a variety of photographic strategies helping you discover unique perspectives, see new patterns and themes not readily apparent and develop personal insight. Learn how to apply those discoveries to your photography and reframe your life.

No previous camera experience is necessary. All levels of camera sophistication are welcome, from iPhones to state-of-the-art dSLRs and beyond. The class will culminate in a photography exhibition at the Museum.

Photography, What’s the Big Idea?
This course will address the question of “how do we look at photography as art?” We’ll travel through the history of photography with a curious eye looking at the evolution of the photographic processes, techniques, and, most importantly, the ideas that shaped the art form in an attempt to understand the medium better.
