April 10 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 am
Creative Aging program series is geared for older adults aged 50+. Wednesdays, April 3 – May 8th at 10:30 AM, we’re hosting Photography Storytelling, with teaching artist Nefeli Soteriou.
Images can inform, enlighten, delight, and make our world a better place. Anyone can create them, but skill is required to express a personal vision. This course focuses on expressing your personal vision through a blend of teaching, coaching, mentoring on the elementals to Photography. It is about introducing students to the principles of the photographic composition with discussing reference imaging of Master classic works and becoming inspired to create your own photographs for a show exhibit, and, or, to decorate an empty wall in your living room. You will learn about the graphical elements of the visual representation, photographic composition, and will be guided to write expressively, complete a theme project, and learn to control your own digital technology, your i-pad, smart-phone, and, or, personal camera. You will come away with a new understanding of photography and design, and how to use photography to express your creativity, and, or, enhance your personal vision. Artistic skill is not required to participate in this course. Patrons will take home one printed photograph after the show exhibit is completed.
To participate in this program, you must pre-register.
