At Artisan Gallery 218 in Valley Junction, on Tuesday night the 26th, I'll be offering a class entitled 'Creating Enticing Photographs' with libations and munchies. [2 hours for $30] The idea is not to teach how to use a camera as a technical matter, but how to find images where you are taking pictures or images from those you have taken. It will be more of a discussion, demonstration format. Full details are under "Classes" at the gallery's website, www.ArtisanGallery218.com.
Three classes at AG218 for every interest and age group - Drawing classes for 6-9 yr olds starting 1/16; Maskmaking and Felting on Jan. 19th pm and Photography - making your photos enticing, Jan. 26th pm. Details at www.ArtisanGallery218.com
I hired the son of a Venetian friend & photographer and he took me on a 4 hour or so boat ride out in the Venetian Lagoon and also some of the less traveled canals of Castello and Cannaregio in Venice.

The other day I shared a picture of a Des Moines bridge and this is where it was taken from, The Hub, a great place to sit, eat and drink and relax, next to the Des Moines river. Especially on a lovely, sunny day [and not too hot!
