Join us for hybrid (online and in person) educational photography workshops. These community-driven workshops focus on photography as a means for creative expression and acquiring basic photography skills. Learn and practice various aspects of photography such as composition and lighting. No prior experience is required and all levels of proficiency and camera types are welcome. Teens (16 years and older) and adults are welcome. Please see below for more information regarding upcoming workshops.

Our Levy Park workshop series will conclude in the spring with a group exhibition featuring works by participating students throughout the past year. View the first annual Views from Levy Park exhibition here, featuring photographic works by artists who participated in our monthly workshops from May 2019 – April 2020.


UPCOMING WORKSHOPS

 

Abstraction: Let’s break away from representational imagery and create abstract photographs by playing with framing, perspective, and more. Bring a macro lens or telephoto lens if you have one, but not required.

 

Multiple Exposure and Digital Layering: Learn how to create layered, superimposed images by experimenting with long shutter speed or using multiple exposure smartphone apps.

 

Image Transfer and Mixed Media: Learn about various photographic transfer techniques, including using Xerox copies/laser prints and DASS Transfer Film, and how they may be incorporated into drawings and paintings. Bring Xerox copies/laser prints and inkjet prints of your photos as well as any colored pencils or watercolor sets you may have.

 

Collage and Mixed Media: Consider how new meaning can be created by physically layering two or more photographs into one composite image. Bring your transfers from the previous lesson, printed photos, scrap paper or fabric, and be ready to cut, arrange, and glue.

 

Critique: Learn how to read and critique a photograph. Get feedback on your work from the instructor and your peers before the April 17th exhibition. The instructor will assist in making final selections for the exhibition. Bring a selection of your work, preferably prints.

 

April 17th: Exhibition and Opening Reception: Celebrate the culmination of a year of hard work and creativity! View your photographic work created during the Levy Park workshop series in a public display. Format to be determined; more details to come soon!
