Summer CLASSES AT IN-SIGHT
Classes are offered regardless of ability to pay, and no interested youth is ever turned away because of their family’s economic circumstances. Families are asked to pledge and pay what they can afford.
The Summer semester starts the week of June 26th.
Nature Photo Explorers
June 26 – 30, 9am – 3pm *Ages 12-15
This program will integrate digital photography into nature exploration and discovery, through a collaboration between In-Sight Photography and BEEC. We will use the camera as a lens to investigate the natural world around us.

Analog Street Photography
July 3-7, 12-4pm *Ages 11-18
This week long intensive class will focus on the tradition of street photography using analog 35mm black and white film.
Students will learn about influential and iconic photographers who have photographed everyday life on the streets. They will talk with current, local practitioners of this style of photography, and of course spend time photographing the streets of Brattleboro under the guidance of In-Sight’s instructors
July 10-14, 12-4pm *Ages 11-18
This week-long intensive will look at photography as a professional endeavor. Using digital photography, students will learn how to make professional style portraits, work with clients, plan and edit a photoshoot, and deliver a final product to the client. This class will be led by local photographer Jeff Woodward.
Aug 10-11, 12-4pm *Ages 11-18
Utilizing the 19th century antique process of cyanotype, students will experiment with making cameraless images utilizing found objects and the power of the sun. Additionally, students will learn to combine contemporary practices of creating digital negatives with the antique cyanotype process to make new imagery.
This is a tactile, hands-on process, that is both fun and accessible for all ages.
Pinhole Photography Workshop
Aug 24-25, 12-4pm *Ages 11-18
Students will learn how to make the pinhole cameras and photos during this 2-day workshop exploring the creative possibilities of low-tech photography. Students will learn basic camera mathematics and principles, how to build cameras, and test exposures with paper negatives. After constructing a camera, students will photograph outside and then head into the darkroom where they will develop their images. Students will also have an opportunity to create B&W contact prints of their paper negatives if time permits.
