Tuesdays 10:00 am-12:00 pm

We will make a beautiful wall-hanging using vibrant cotton fabrics. We will learn to make patterns, cut, piece, design, assemble, and hand-quilt the piece to finish it. This is a chance to explore the use of color, design, and texture. You will develop new skills and finish with a lovely piece of art. No experience necessary.
Seeing Like a Photographer | Winter 2020: Jan. 22-Mar. 4 | Ages 13+
Level 1: Introduction to Photography Basics
Wednesdays 6:30-8:00 pm
Instructor: Brent Watkins
This introductory course, designed strictly for beginners, will provide a solid basis in the skills and concepts of photography. We will cover the concepts of composition, light, point-of-view and how to represent a 3-dimensional world in a 2-dimensional medium. Weekly assignments and in-class review will help us all learn and grow together and cement the basic concepts of photography in our minds - without all the technical and post-production distractions.
To keep this class accessible - a cell phone camera is all the "gear" you will need.
Log Cabin Raising | Spring 2020: Mar. 24-May 5 | Ages 18+
Note: No class Apr. 7.
Using a rotary cutter, we will cut strips of fabric and sew them into “log cabin” patches. Two will make pillow tops, three or more a table runner, and on up to a bed quilt! You can choose to sew by machine or by hand. Bring your own fabric or use ours. Materials charge only if you use a lot! This is a very easy, wonderful, traditional Ohio pattern!
Thinking Like a Photographer | Spring 2020: Mar. 25-May 13 | Ages 13+
Level 2: Photography Basics
Note: No class Apr. 8.
After building the basic skill sets of composition and concept, we will move into the realm of not just recording images, but using the camera tools to CREATE the image you see in your head. We will cover the more advanced concepts of depth, blur, motion, and MAKING (not just taking) photographs. We will also cover the fundamentals of post-production and image management. Weekly assignments and critiques will encourage students to share ideas that will help improve your skills. This class will require a camera with manual settings (shutter speed, aperture, iso, etc) and access to a computer for post-production.
