Small Classroom



This class encourages students to explore their surroundings, discover, and see the world around them in an imaginative way. Through the use of photography, students will document subjects in a manner that's original, opening a wider artistic view of the world.

Students will learn how to look at light, color, patterns, and composition and how to create compelling photographs that are unique to their vision. 

No need for prior photography knowledge or a professional camera. Even a cell phone camera will do! This class is about creativity, discovery, and - most of all - having fun!
