Introduction to Photography
with Arend Thibodeau
What is the rule of thirds? Why are my images boring? Why does my friend take the same picture as I do and her picture looks better? Bring your camera to class and learn how to make a great image rather than simply take a photograph. We will focus on what constitutes a great image and how to think about composition, lighting and subject matter. We will compare and contrast work by contemporary artists in order to understand how to develop our own unique statements as photographers.

Make & Take Gifts with Essential Oils
with Jenny Spencer
Maybe you've been hearing about essential oils and are curious, or maybe you just like finding ways to make gifts for others and things to use at home for yourself that are chemical free, safe and non-toxic. Whether it's either, both, or neither but you like to have fun, we'll have a casual get-together that will be fun and informative, too! Learn about essential oils, how they're made (don't worry, we won't get too science-y!), and all the ways they can be used from making our houses smell good to replacing beauty products to supporting our physical and emotional health (because, as we know, the emotions - stress is a great example - can affect our physical health, too!). And you'll get to make a couple goodies, too, and get the recipes to make more! These are easy to make and are great to use yourself and to give as gifts for teachers, friends, family, and more. We'll make room sprays (there will be choices of a Sleepy-time and an appropriate seasonal-inspired one) along with body lotion and lip balm. And, as an extra bonus, some all-natural cleaner for around the house and some additional easy-peasy but good recipes to take home! *A $20.00 material fee is payable to the instructor at the start of the class. This covers your take-home item’s and hand out’s. Limit 10.
