spring 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 Spring semester starts the week of February 12. 


Digital Photo 1: The Great Outdoors!

Mondays 4-6pm

Instructors: Kelly Fletcher and Kristina Weeks

This program will integrate digital photography into nature exploration and discovery, through a collaboration between In-Sight Photography and the Bonneyvale Environmental Education Center. We will use the camera as a lens to investigate the natural world as it changes from winter into spring.

As an introductory class, students will also learn basic operation of a digital single lens reflex (DSLR) camera as well as tools for downloading, editing, and printing their images. 

All students are expected to attend each class as well as 1 open lab each week.

Made possible in part by the Vermont Community Foundation's Small & Inspiring grant program.

RAD: Revolutionary Art Dialogues

Tuesdays 4-7pm

Instructors: Katie Kohnfelder and Sarah Smiley

Are you R.A.D.? In In-Sight’s newest class, RAD: Revolutionary Art Dialogues, we focus on how the media shapes our identities, and most importantly, how to reframe that influence. This class is all about YOUR ideas and how to get them into the world. We will consume, question, produce, and share -- through digital and analog photography projects, interdisciplinary workshops (Zines and screen printing anyone?!), film screenings, and collaborations with local artists and social-justice activists!  Students will also have the opportunity to present their work from class at a final gallery show in May.

This class is intended for students 15-18, but younger students who are interested can contact us for more information about exceptions.

All students are expected to attend each class as well as 1 open lab each week.

Advanced Digital Photo: Constructed Realities

Wednesdays 4-6 pm

Instructor: Zachary P. Stephens

This class will take students learning digital photography to new realms in terms of compositing, layering, and masking within Adobe Photoshop. Students will look at contemporary photographers working within this style of photographic practice, and learn the tools and techniques to construct their own surreal photographic realities. In addition students will get an introduction to lighting, and learn new ways of post-processing and printing their images. 

All students are expected to attend each class as well as 1 open lab each week.

*NOTE: This class will start on FEBRUARY 28

Intro to Analog Photography

Wednesdays 6-8 pm

This class, which is great for youth of all ages and all skill levels, will dive right into the basics and magic of traditional black and white film photography.  Students will learn how to use manual 35mm cameras, process their own film, and print their own images in the darkroom.  They will also learn how to see in a new way through the basic techniques of composition, shape, and light. Advanced students will be able to refresh and grow their current skills.

All students are expected to attend each class as well as 1 open lab each week.
