WORKSHOPS > Stop Relying on Natural Light

Students will have the opportunity to grab something to eat or drink from the SNAP Foto Cafe, use the facilities, and get some fresh air outside on Stephen Avenue. This will also be an opportunity for everyone in the class to mingle and network with others.
Instructors will demonstrate in studio practical examples of concepts discussed in classroom.
Students will have the opportunity to put to practice what they learned in theory and practical examples. Model(s) will be on hand to pose for students in studio and outside on Stephen Avenue. Instructors will be on hand to help, answer questions, and provide feedback.
