Promoting public interest and participation in the arts since 1961.
Archive of past events: 2004 through 2014
This two day workshop will encompass in-room lectures and demonstrations, critiquing of the participants' work, and out in the field photography. Susan and Neil have taught at Gualala Arts in the past and lead a lively and fun workshop that is jam packed with information and ideas. They really enjoy the "hands on approach" and work very hard at helping everyone to find their own vision and direction with their own photography. This workshop is great for all levels of experience; the only real requirement is to have a camera, a curiosity, and a passion to learn.
Look for their lecture on January 26th at Gualala Arts Center. $5 donation, free if you are signed up for this workshop.
The Silvermans have taught for Great American Photography Workshops for years as well as Santa Fe School of Photography, Coupeville Art Center, Golden Gate School of Photography, Professional Photographers of America and affiliates, BetterPhoto.com and many other private schools. They are involved with stock photography and work with several stock companies. They love to photograph places, people, products.
Susan and Neil lead workshops and tours nation-wide and have a passion for landscape and nature photography. Even though they travel extensively, they always find their hearts returning to Sonoma County, the coast and the endless possibilities of beauty and drama available right along our own coastline.
