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).
Day and Time: Saturday and Sunday, 10am – 4pm

Students will learn the history and techniques for making wet collodion images.
