  • Creative Nature and Landscape Photography: Concept, Capture, and Process

    Nature and landscape photography transcends "pretty postcards" when made by creatively engaged photographers who understand their motivations, subjects, and tools. My goal is to provide you with the inspiration, knowledge, and hands-on learning to help advance your creativity and photography skills with an emphasis on nature and landscape photography. This workshop is suitable for all experience levels and offers a unique blend of philosophy, field work, and classroom instruction in beautiful settings. We'll cover photographic fundamentals; precision exposure and capture; image aesthetics; special tips and techniques; and conclude with an overview of post-processing basics using both Adobe Lightroom and Adobe Photoshop.
  • ARTbar: Malbec Sipping & Metal Tooling with Ann Cheeks

    January 19:  Art Bar:  Malbec Sipping & Metal Tooling with Ann Cheeks!  

    Metal tooling is a centuries-old art in which a soft metal is worked with a rounded tool on the back side in order to create a raised design on the front. It is also referred to as repoussé or embossing. A close look at some examples from various cultures reveals classic examples of repetitive pattern and rhythmic line incorporated into a design. We will be using a soft, flexible metal that is easily manipulated with pencils or other tools without applying heavy pressure. Participants will walk away with three or more 5"x5" squares that can be connected to form a dyptich or folded around a cylinder to place around a votive candle. $35 includes all supplies and one drink at the bar!

  • The Hedonist's Notebook with Kierstin Bridger

    Feed the writer, fuel the reader! When we engage our senses we allow experience to transfer to our readers. Sensory designed prompts and examples will lush writing about food, art and music. When our metaphors are ripe our writing becomes alive with rich detail. This is a generative writing class inspired by prompts that trigger our senses in deep and unexpected ways.

    If you haven’t written in a while, or simply want to add a fresh approach to your writing practice, this is a supportive and encouraging place to experiment and receive positive, engaging feedback about your work. Whether you write fiction, non-fiction or poetry this class will enliven your practice and sustain you as you continue on your writing path. (All Genre All Levels)
