adult center client with volunteer


Thursday, October 30, 2014

Taking selfies is fun and almost everyone with a mobile device has done it. But, did you know the camera in your mobile device can be used to make art you can put on your desktop, hang in your house, or frame and sell at a fall festival or art gallery?

Join us for a lunch hour class, led by avocational nature and industrial scene photographer John W. Coniglio. This beginner class covers basic mobile device photography from a fine art perspective. Art experience or knowledge is not a prerequisite.

We will use the Apple iPhone as a camera, but the principles involved encompass the broader arena of photography, regardless of the device being used as a camera.

Bring your lunch, mobile device and imagination! Space is limited.

WHEN:  Thursday, October 30.  Noon - 1 p.m.

WHERE:  Signal Centers Assistive Technology Center, 2300 Bailey Avenue, Chattanooga

CLASS FEE:  $35 per person OR $20 with student or military ID
