About Our Classes
Digital Photography (Adults)
This is a great introductory class for adults who want to learn about their DSLR camera and basic photography concepts. In eight weeks you will learn specifics of how to use your DSLR outside of AUTO mode & utilize features you may not even realize are in there. Getting comfortable in Manual Mode & taking control of the features, will help you make any type of image you can imagine! We spend 4-5 weeks in the classroom, 2-3 weeks shooting, and finish with a live critique where we, as a class see the difference in your work.
Taught by Jesse Walker.
Photography & The Art of Seeing (Adults)
This photography class is an exploration of "seeing the art in the everyday "...an exploration of the beauty of that and learning to talk about it. We will practice shooting using existing light while trying to remain a "fly on the wall". The instructor will share some techniques in the idea of shooting "on the street" while remaining unobtrusive to the scene. We will meet at different locations outdoors, all participants should not only have their camera gear but have a folding chair and face mask, and gloves at the ready for all classes. This Art of Seeing class has a slightly different twist as we will practice safe distance shooting using wide and long lenses to create images of human interest together. Topics are creating People Porch Portraits, hiking in the landscape to create images of serenity and calm, and a go at conceptual pandemic portraiture location work, with one random street stranger shoot. The student should have a basic understanding of his or her camera and can use the camera of their choice. We will have an online Gallery for virtual critiques.
Alternative Printing Processes (Adults)
This class is an introduction to some of the earliest 19th century photographic processes, the Cyan-blue print, Lumen contact printing, and Anthotype contact printing. As a bonus, we will shoot a roll of 120 mm BW film & process it. These larger format negatives can be used with the Cyanotype printing process.
The Cyanotype is a 170-year-old photographic printing process that produces prints in a distinctive dark greenish blue. The word cyan comes from Greek, meaning "dark blue substance." The process was invented in 1842 by Sir John Herschel, a brilliant astronomer and scientist. A lumen print is a solar photogram - an image created on photographic paper, exposed by the sun. It was one of the first photographic processes developed by Fox Talbot in 19th century England. The anthotype is printed in the sun for a few days or several weeks. The anthotype print develops as the rays of the sun destroys the color of the pigment, bleaching the print. Each and every emulsion will need a different exposure time. Some emulsions need only a few hours to change color, some a few weeks.
This workshop is suitable for everyone, especially beginners. You will learn how to compose objects, rip paper to size, mix the chemicals, make emulsion, coat paper, and expose using a UV light/Sunlight to make your own cyanotype photograms and more. You will be instructed on how to create acetate digital-like negatives. You will learn how to create a beautiful set of blue prints, experiment with Lumen & Anthotype contact printing using objects & subjects of your choice. Your instructor has a vast selection of items that you can experiment with, or if you prefer, collect & bring along your own found objects such as items of nature, flowers, and leaves, beads and buttons, or lace. Almost anything can be used, so be resourceful and creative.
Some paper will be provided. Sizes will vary as well as the class printing frames. For the advanced student, you may want to experiment with stencils, or make drawings on acetate or shoot a larger format camera for larger negatives. Cost includes some materials. You will also be asked to bring in some materials. A supply list will be provided prior to our first class. Bring a notepad and pencil. Wear old clothes or bring an apron.
Note: Many of your exposures will be done outside of class and one session will be scheduled earlier in the day at an agreed-upon location with good light.

Art & Photography Kids Camp (ages 6-11)
Children will use art-based projects to explore the nature of what a photograph is and what it can be.
Day 1: Chalk Dream Portraits/ Collaborative Self Portrait/Photo Shoot
Day 2: Self Portrait Sun Print Murals
Parents are welcome to stay with their children or drop them off. The children's creativity and collaboration will be displayed in an art show at the Thatcher-Young Mansion (35 W 100 S).
Students need to wear sunscreen & bring a sun hat. Students are welcome to bring any type of camera, even if it is a toy, as the instructor will be making most of the portraits with a class camera. Children are welcome to bring a water bottle and/or snack.
Taught by Maria Ellen Huebner.
PhotoClix (ages 11-17)
This ART Photography class is an introduction to "seeing" and using the camera as a tool to capture the extraordinary that is right in front of us on a daily basis. The student can use the digital camera of choice as well as practice with the class DSLR for classroom projects only. Each class will end with an outdoor walkabout photo safari. The first session will cover the introduction to using a digital camera and to framing up a composition that works effectively with the subject matter. This session will end with a photographic scavenger hunt. Session two: We will focus on the "self-image" and what each student finds to be the "Best Part of themselves." We will photograph those parts/ pieces collaboratively, this project will also include a portion that includes a writing assignment. Example: Eyes – so they can read or see... We will edit in & outside of class & print a collection of the images for the next class session. Session three: We will then work in collaboration to build a full-scale portrait using the photo montage/ joiner technique. We will also apply color and type onto the pieces. Session four: We will experiment with some, not all of these novelty photographic techniques to create the idea of soft focus, double exposures & bokeh light shaping, Focal Length Pulls, reflection/ shadow & Night Photography. Students will be asked to email the instructor one or more files per week so they can be printed at a local print lab.
