Southern Vermont Arts Center Virtual Class: Springboard DSLR Camera Workshop

Southern Vermont Arts Center Virtual Class: Springboard DSLR Camera Workshop

Instructor: Maria French
Zoom meeting dates: Tuesday, August 4, Saturday, August 8 and Tuesday, August 11
Time: Tuesday evenings: 7 – 8:30 p.m. • Saturday morning: 10 – 11:30 a.m.
Cost: SVAC Member: $75; Non-Member: $85
Learn how to use your camera to its fullest potential!

This three-session workshop is targeted to beginner/advanced beginners who have acquired a digital SLR camera but are hesitant to leave automatic settings, even though the photos they have in mind to take would greatly benefit from full manual control over focus, ISO, aperture, and shutter speed. Class meets over Zoom Tuesday evening, Saturday morning and the following Tuesday evening. In between meetings, practice new techniques, and then return to Maria and the group with questions and photos to discuss. Open to photographers ages 15 and up.

You will receive instruction on how to understand the feedback your camera provides and how to use that to adjust settings manually to get the photos you want. We’ll talk about the mechanics of your camera and about taking advantage of available light. There will be plenty of practice to help you gain the confidence to continue to learn from your camera and improve your photos beyond the bounds of this workshop.

Any camera that can set on full manual control over focus, ISO, aperture, and shutter speed is acceptable for this class. One camera can be shared by no more than two people. When you register, Maria will contact you to talk through details associated with your particular camera.

Maria French: About Me

I’m an American who has been home in Vermont, France, Maine, Cameroon, Eritrea, Italy, Northern Ireland, Kosovo, Guinea,Sierra Leone, Bangladesh, Vietnam, Georgia (USA), California, and Qatar over the past four decades. I’ve always explored the world on foot and through the lens of my camera, but this process became more intensive in my desert home. In the three years before moving back to the USA in 2016, I walked many miles of Doha, falling in love, against all expectations, with the lines and the light and the creatures that manage to survive the heat. Upon returning to Vermont, I’m continuing to look for and share beauty whenever I come across it, most often on the street, farm, and trail. With a camera I can delight in moments I never even saw- a fairy crown from a drop of water, the light through a bird’s outstretched wing. My work continues to travel internationally, as prints in many homes, on notecards, and recently in shows in Vermont and Dubai. My latest project is designing and leading workshops that will provide beginning photographers with an understanding of light and the manual controls of their cameras, so they can continue to learn and create on their own.

Southern Vermont Arts Center Clay Sculpture Workshop

Southern Vermont Arts Center Clay Sculpture Workshop

In this three-day workshop, students will work from a live model to create figure and portrait sculptures, using water-based clay. Using demonstrations and personalized assistance, George emphasizes proportion, gesture and anatomy as a basis for artistically expressive sculpture.

Instructor: George Paxton
Cost: SVAC Member: $295; Non-Member: $330 ($25 additional materials fee)
Ages 14 (with parent/guardian permission) – Adult

Artist Statement:
I work from nature with a live model to create classically-inspired, representational, figurative sculpture in terra cotta and cast in bronze. I believe that the creative process must be grounded in the basics. A good understanding of proportion, gesture, and anatomy is essential. But, as a perfect depiction of a figure can best be captured by a photograph, an accurate representation of nature serves only as a starting place from which artistic expression and creativity spring. With an understanding of proportion and anatomy, an artist can select out certain features and forms, accentuating them while minimizing others, and create sculpture that is not only true to nature, but which also expresses the artist’s views and captures the essence, mood and feeling of the subject.

Southern Vermont Arts Center "Still Life Watercolor Painting of Vermont's Summer Bounty"

Instructor: Ned Reade
Cost: SVAC Member: $275; Non-Member: $305
In this three-day workshop, Ned will guide you from thumbnail sketch to vibrant painting–with summer’s objects and August’s light as inspiration. A different still life on each of the workshop’s three days. Open to ages 14 to adult.

Whether painting on a ridge overlooking a sheep farm, or by the rushing waters of a trout stream, or along the New England coast, Ned Reade captures the changing light and colors of the seasons in watercolors and oils. He likes nothing better than filling a thermos of coffee and bringing a chocolate chip cookie to a painting location. He only rewards himself once the sketch is done, and he’s ready to paint! He teaches a watercolor workshop on Martha’s Vineyard each summer, and his work can be seen in galleries around New England. For thirty years he has been Chairman of the Art Department at the Trinity-Pawling School in Pawling, NY.
