    Processed with VSCO with 6 presetSaturday, February 9, 2-5pm
    Cyanotype, a photographic printing process that results in a cyan-blue print, is the perfect place to start an education in alternative (non-silver) photographic processes.  Not only is this alternative process low in cost and simple to master, but it creates beautiful and distinctive results.  This class will be of interest to both photographers looking to broaden their printing options, and print based artists looking to add a photographic element to their work.

    The class will begin with a discussion on sourcing, mixing and storing of the chemistry used in preparing the photographic emulsion.  Then basic digital negative preparation and enlargement will be covered, along with available options for printing.  This course will use a UV light source in the printshop, but printing with sunlight will also be discussed.

    Once prints have been made, the techniques of bleaching and toning will be demonstrated.  Finishing techniques will be discussed, touching upon the archival qualities of the prints, to conclude the class.

    Materials to bring to class: Bring an image or three with you on a hard drive or you can download your images here.

    Introduction to Photoshop will allow participants to learn the basic tools and uses of Photoshop CC including scanning artwork, photo correction, resizing, working with text and saving your files. We’ll also dive into using layers, effects, and masking. After the first session, students will work through a series of exercises to better understand Photoshop’s many features.

    talking to strangersMake friends and explore different techniques and best practices for
    podcast interviews!

    Tuesday March 5, 6-9pm

    Every podcast interview has different challenges. Sometimes, the person you’re interviewing is nervous or defensive. Other times, they might have overprerpared, and you’d like them to slow down and be more natural. And still other times, they may want to jump the rails altogether and talk about something completely off-topic.

    In this class, we will talk about different approaches to making an interview-based podcast, and challenges and questions that can arise along the way. The instructor, Jacob Haller of the Tell Me About Your Song podcast, will share his experiences and organize the discussion, but you are encouraged to share your own experiences and stories.

    This class is recommended to people who already have started a podcast, or who are well on their way to starting one.

      Saturdays March 10 + 17, 2-5pm

      Bring the intimidation factor from 10 to 0!  Learn your camera like the back of your hand. After this class you’ll feel confident using your DSLR, and capture those pictures you’ve been wanting. Weather permitting, the class will go on a photo walk around downtown Providence.

      During the first part of the class, students will learn camera basics including the camera body and all its ports and parts, the lens, focus and depth of field, exposure (f-stops, shutter speed and iso), white balance, and file settings. Students will take some snap shots in the studio to explore concepts along the way.  On the second day, students will learn about composition concepts and natural lighting. Putting all the pieces together, the group will walk around the downtown and practice the magic of photography! At the end of the course students will also learn how transfer their images onto a computer.

      Instructor:  Kia Davis.  Kia was trained as a fine art photographer at Pratt Institute in New York. She has exhibited her work at Brooklyn Powerhouse, Grin and AS220 in Providence, where she began her artistic career with The AS220 Youth Program.

      In addition to her photography work, Kia has dabbled in narrative filmmaking, event production + programming, and blog writing. Her fine art portfolio can be found here: http://kiaelena.format.com/
