Photographic Composition
with Stephen Whitaker 
Saturday, June 10, 2017  1:00 - 8:00 p.m.
and Sunday, June 11, 2017  5:30 a.m. - noon

In this two-day workshop, we will explore the principles of composition, the concept of “visual weight,” how to choose what to include and omit, and how to use texture, shape, form, color and quality of light to create beautiful images that you will be thrilled to share no matter what kind of camera you use. We will spend a mix of time in the classroom and in the field, shooting around sunset and sunrise to get great quality of light—and finishing in time for a much-needed nap on Sunday! All levels are welcome, and we will work with whatever camera you have.

Smoked-Fired Garden Sculptures and Animal Forms with Susan Raber Bray
June 26 - 29, 2017 
Mon. - Thurs. 9:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.

Come share in the joy of creating and embrace the spontaneity of the natural smoke-firing process! We will create garden sculptures and animal forms, drawing inspiration from indigenous cultures worldwide. Students will have the opportunity to learn or expand their knowledge of hand-building techniques—such as coil, pinch and slab—or throwing on the wheel. We will burnish our pieces with terra sigillata, or colored slip, and create surface designs using wax, tape, wire, brushes and tools for incising and sgraffito. We will also use a variety of local materials in the firing process, such as seaweed, sawdust, grasses and straw. For age 10 through adult.

$120 members, $130 non-members (includes materials). Please register by June 16.
