Upcoming events (5+)
There are a variety of free or inexpensive apps available for your smart phone/tablet that can help with the artistic process! During this Art Talk we will demo several apps that may assist you with turning your own photographs into works of art. Topics will include: cropping images to best suit your canvas size, transferring your image onto canvas, determining values, finding the best composition, narrowing down your color palette, and more. Please note: Demos will take place on an iphone/ipad, however the concepts can be used with most smart phones/tablets. Art Talks are free and open to the public, and brown-bag lunches are always welcome!
The Life Enrichment Center’s Photography Club is for beginners as well as seasoned photographers. The club meets once a month for open discussions, demonstrations, and workshops.
