Our Arts program was created to bring an appreciation of the fine arts into students' lives by discovering individual talents, encouraging original expression, and fostering creative discovery. On campus, Students experience live professional performances in the Leura Hill Eastman Performing Arts Center, see professionally curated exhibits in the PACE Galleries, and display their own works of art in the Nadler Gallery.  


In photography class, you will learn photography is an art. We experiment with different styles and learn to appreciate each others work. We will look at the role photography has in your daily lives and how you can use photos to share and influence other around the globe. It is a class for everyone to learn something new and have fun with art.

Working in a studio and on location.  We focus on working for a customer verse working for yourself.

Digital photography has a place for everyone, at every skill level.
