With the promise of spring and rebirth just ahead of us, we are offering eight brand new workshops in March and April to encourage your growth as an imagemaker. These workshops are being offered for the very first time, so don’t wait to jump in and enjoy a springtime of learning something new.
New technique is the focus of two short programs with digital collage artist Maggie Taylor, and two evenings with master printmaker Cotton Miller. The transition from making still images to shooting video is the goal of filmmaker David Helfer Wells and his three-week introductory workshop.
Improve your storytelling skills with documentary photographer Alison Wright; or complete a personal project with renown National Geographic editors Sarah Leen and Bill Marr.
Niall Benvie takes you into the field to create a studio setting for your images of the natural world. Delve into memory and personal history while crafting lyrical photographs with photographer and writer Sal Taylor Kydd.
