Automatic settings will be covered but those with camera settings such as A/Av & S/Tv (for Aperture and Shutter control) will receive the most benefit.

JULY 7TH, 2013 : Mushroom Walk with Artist  Unlike other mushroom walks the goal will not only be to forage for food but to appreciate and be inspired by mycology. Alexis Williams will describe practical uses of wild mushrooms like ink making, dying, and environmental remediation while we explore what happens when we step off the path and use our intuition to make decisions to find mushrooms (and slime molds) to be studied for aesthetic inspiration. Participants are encouraged to bring cameras, flat bottom baskets and sketch books.

JULY 26TH -JULY 28TH, 2013 : Writing the Story of Your Life This 3-day workshop with Ian Ferrier will use a very open mind to help each participant choose the best way to bring writing into his or her life—from journals to offhand storytelling to serious works of poetry or prose. It is open to anyone who wants to engage writing as a tool for discovering the meaning and excitement in life.

JULY 29TH -AUGUST 2ND, 2013 :  The Voice of the Writer  This 5-day workshop with Ian Ferrier intended for writers who want to develop the range, beauty and breadth of their own voice.  It sees print as the typescript for an unruly talker who breaks out of the page and announces her or his discoveries to the world.  It examines how even the most sophisticated writers in the language are grounded in voice, even if it is only a voice heard in the mind.  It is open to writers of poetry and prose as well as spoken word artists, to anyone looking at how to use a tool that still rules in the literature of the 21st century.

JULY 30TH -AUGUST 1ST, 2013 : Acrylic Painting Workshop – Self Portraits  Open to both beginners and experienced painters this 3 day acrylic painting workshop will consist of 4 segments, one devoted to landscape painting and three self-portrait segments.
