The Power of a Series of Photographs

Pictures aren’t just pretty.  They tell stories.  Stories are told through the juxtaposition of a series of images.  Delve deep into your subject and see what stories you can discover.  This class takes place over a long span of time with 5 classes 2 weeks apart so you have time to explore and build your series.  Starts April 13 and goes until June 8, 2015.

Photo Surrealism… Blow your own mind!

Photo Surrealism In September!


Photo by Ruth Howard

Make people think, mess with their minds!
In this photography class you will create surrealistic art, guided by Cuban artist German Portuondo’s surrealistic sensibilities.

Surrealism is an art form using the exploration of symbolism and an altered reality to create imaginative self expression that is free form the strict bounds of objective pictorial art.  This allows you more freedom to use images to explore and express your experience of the world.
