This summer, we are pleased to offer four new and exciting workshops at the Griffin! These workshops will offer you the unique opportunity to enhance your photographic skills and learn about alternative photographic processes in a fun, creative learning environment. From high school to adult, we encourage students of all interests and levels to attend.
Arts educator Michelle Rogers Pritzl will lead the workshops. Michelle is currently a MFA candidate at the Art Institute of Boston (AIB). Prior to attending the AIB, she taught for five years at the University High School in Irvine, CA. She loves getting students excited about photography and has taught several levels of darkroom and digital including alternative processes (including cyanotype, Van Dyke brown, Gumoil, Kallitype, and tintypes).

Join in as we learn techniques for taking pictures with digital cameras. Students will begin by learning basic camera controls – exposure, shutter speed, aperture, design and composition techniques. We will look at work by historical and contemporary photographers and take our cameras on walking field trips. This course will also cover conceptual and creative solutions to weekly topics, including portraiture, landscape, digital manipulation, and interpretive and documentary assignments. There will be a print demonstration at the end of the course and students will have the opportunity to print their own images.
Course Requirements: Students must own a digital camera (DSLR or Digital Point and Shoot)
