Summer is a great time to dust off your digital SLR (or one of ours!) and explore Pittsburgh and surrounding areas through the lens of a camera. In this class, we will venture out for the first 4 weeks and photograph interesting destinations in and around Pittsburgh. Learn to use your camera in full manual mode to achieve the kind of photographs you desire. Learn how to do spectacular HDR photography. The last four weeks of the class will be spent editing your photos in Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Camera Raw and Photomatix Pro. Finally, you will prepare 3 pieces for our class exhibition including cutting mats and framing. The last night of class we will celebrate your work with a reception open to the public. No experience or equipment needed.

Whether you’re a total beginner or an experienced potter, you’ll have a great time at MCG. Although we tend to gravitate towards wheel throwing and functional pottery, you are welcome to create hand-built ornamental and sculptural work as well. Works made in this class will be high-fired in our gas kiln so they’ll look great and be microwave and dishwasher safe. We may even do some raku firing, which is an exciting process that leads to interesting and often beautiful results. Please note the earlier time for summer, 5-8 pm.
