Creative Storytelling with Photos
Are you looking for a fun, creative learning activity?
What about one that will encourage you to explore your world?
Let's play, come learn, & take your photography skills from ordinary to extraordinary . . . all from the comfort of your home!!
What is creative storytelling & who is it for?
You've been taking photos for years but you always say that you wish your photos looked better or for that matter told a story. This is where creative storytelling comes into play. When you learn the design principles & apply them to any type of photograph you take, you will see a dramatic improvement in how your images look. No matter what type of camera you are using (cellphone or DSLR), you will start to see the world around you differently.
Families or individual who are looking for a fun creative learning activity that will bring them outdoors & encourage them to explore their world.
Anyone that is interested in honing their skills in seeing & observing.
Definitely for ages 10 & up (no younger than 8yrs old is preferred)
You are stuck at home & tired of staring at the four walls.
You are interested in learning how the design principles influence photographic composition.
What is the workshop process?
4 weekly—ONLINE instruction sessions using Zoom (discussion/critiques/presentation). The sessions will be recorded if you miss a session.
Participate in a private Facebook group to share your photos & encourage each other as your composition skills improve.

What people have said about this workshop
I didn’t know what to expect when I signed up for this class. But the knowledge & creativity that’s shared literally jumpstarted my passion for photography. I now live each day seeing as an artist does. I’ve grown as an artist and my photography skills have grown as well. I look forward to sharing my work with the world.
Doing this photography class outside of school allowed me to deal with the stress and explore something I otherwise would not have been able to do. I learned the basics of Photoshop and editing, but more importantly, I got feedback from my fellow participants and my photography has improved. Because of this class, I have considered doing the art show in the spring. I have grown as an artist and found that photography is a de-stressor for me. I plan to keep up this hobby/activity for the rest of my life.
