  • $245 plus a $20 materials fee 

Jennifer Ramos has been teaching photography camps here since 2013 and not only are her classes really fun, but the students come away with a wealth of knowledge about perspective, an individual way of seeing, portraiture, lighting, editing, and composition. She leads our photographers on morning photo walks through our 10 acres of creek side nature with creative instruction, and follows them up with discussions of the previous day’s images using our class Flickr account*. Jennifer Ober will lead the art portion of the camp each afternoon. With many repeat students from summer to summer, the specific projects will be planned after the registration period so Jennifer can be sure the projects are new for the kids who have enrolled. We’ll be sure to have our hands in all kinds of art media, including clay**!

*Please note that the students in this camp will need to bring a digital camera and plan to upload their photos to our class Flickr account each evening. A camera is preferred. If you don’t have a digital camera a phone camera may be used, however we will ask the students not to use the phone for any other purpose during class time and to store the phone away when not actively taking photos. A photo release is required for this camp. 

**Please note that clay projects must dry for several days before they can be fired in the kiln, so clay projects will need to be picked up at a later date. If your child would like to glaze (add color!) to his or her ceramic piece(s), you can always sign up for one of the glazing days later in the summer.

Please bring/wear the following each day:
* a reusable water bottle
* two snacks
* a sack lunch
* wear art-friendly clothes (we also have art t-shirts available)
* wear water-friendly shoes that secure well to the feet (NO FLIP FLOPS or CROCS)

To Register: Please complete the student profile, then add the class to your cart and select the ‘pay with a credit card’ option. If you prefer to pay with cash or check, just email Jennifer at to make arrangements.
