To Register - select quantity and add to cart

Location: Brevard, NC

Instructors: Janet Garrity Saucier and Les Saucier

Limit: 10 participants.

Expand your way of seeing the world through the lens of your camera. Join Janet and Les Saucier to explore the concepts of the art of seeing.

During this workshop, you can learn how to become a better visual artist. Janet and Les will share with you how to see beyond the labels and practice the art of seeing, which directly lends itself to creating beautiful images, whether landscapes, nature, macro, abstracts or street photography. Participants will study how the camera sees, how the viewer sees, and how graphic design elements - such as shape, line, color, motion, texture - impact the "feeling" of your images..

The highlights of every one of Janet and Les's workshops are the critiques of participants' work. You'll learn more about your unique vision and creative processing during the two critiques included in this workshop than in any other part of the workshop. Critiques are so important that Les and Janet never teach a workshop without participants' photo critiques.

Expand your vision. Join Les and Janet for their "Spring Art of Seeing" in Brevard, NC in May.

Hiking and Exertion -

There isn't much need for hiking unless you choose to do so, as most locations are a short distance from parking areas. Grounds may be uneven at some locations. Days can be long, so participants need to have stamina for a day in the field, particularly should the opportunity for a good sunrise and sunset occur on the same day.

Transportation -

Participants are responsible for their own transportation during the photo tour, as well as getting to the workshop/photo tour location and returning to your point of origin. We encourage car pooling during the workshop/photo tour when possible.

Trip Insurance -

Trip insurance is highly recommended in the case you need to cancel at the last minute due to family emergency and/or illness. Our cancellation policy is available on our Workshop FAQs page. Each hotel has its own cancellation policy, which you are responsible to be aware of and to follow.
