In this workshop students will explore and discover how we all have the power to create within us. Using visual and auditory stimulation such as landscapes, animals and music, students will react to their senses and use their inner creative to produce artwork. This workshop will use mixed media to create drawings and collages.

Digital Photography

Photography throughout time has been a powerful medium to capture iconic events and generate thought-provoking imagery to influence the views of others. In this workshop, students will explore a social, political or cultural topic of interest and create photographic artwork to explore this topic and promote a change or awareness of views for others.
