Photography for Hikers @ Riverwalk Center

A fancy photo app may make your photography look better, but there’s more to eye catching photos than adjusting contrast and color post shoot. Improve your photography skills while enjoying some fresh air on some local trails. Learn some tips on photo composition to help you compose a dynamic shot to begin with, as well as tips on camera operation, whether you will be using your camera phone or your DSLR camera. In addition to bringing cameras, students should also be able and prepared for a light to intermediate hike, with proper footwear, attire, water, snacks, and anything else they may need. We will walk from the Riverwalk Center to a local trail. Anticipate 1-3 miles of hiking. All ages welcome.

Instructor: Kia Neill

Class participants can check-in outside the Riverwalk Center’s West Amphitheater entrance (parking lot side of the building) prior to class. All participants must wear a mask and will be screened upon arrival. Please allow a minimum of 15 minutes prior to class start for the registration process.

This is an introduction to the potters wheel where students will practice the standard throwing steps of centering clay and bringing up the walls to form cylinders and basic shapes. While ceramics is a multiple-step process, students are encouraged to take a second class to cover finishing steps with trimming and adding handles to their pieces and also explore different methods of surface decoration, including sgraffito techniques using underglazes.

While participants will not be able to complete a final fired project in one class, they are encouraged to take another class and/or private glazing class to complete their pieces. 

Firings occur when there is enough work to fill the kiln.
