WORKSHOP TIMES 2:00pm – 4:00pm

In this first series of Lifelong Studio workshops explore different ways of telling stories through photographic images and collage.

Through this sequential photography studio program, participants will learn the history and impact of photography in society and the art world. Participants will also learn the foundational mechanics of photography and see how artists have utilized photography in their creative practices.

Participants will be working towards the final project of a bound photo series book. At the culmination of the program participants will take home an edition of their photobook, a portfolio of all of the additional projects completed in the studio, and a small kit of materials to continue their photographic explorations.

FREE and open to adults ages 55 and over. We will confirm your enrollment via email and phone after you sign up.
