The Arts Center has the following upcoming programs for adults and children scheduled:
"Intro to Photography" with Troy Gunderson will be from 7 to 9 p.m. Tuesdays, Sept. 3, 10, 17 and 24, at Teen City.
Learn the basics of digital photography, what the terms mean, plus techniques that will improve compositions. Participants will learn how to use their camera in manual mode and how to adjust the aperture, shutter speed and ISO to achieve photos not obtainable in automatic modes. The main focus of the instruction will be on using your DSLR camera. Informational handouts will be provided. To aid in learning, participants should become familiar with their camera’s controls and features. Digital cameras are OK to use but cameras with adjustable controls are preferred. The cost is $90, $80 for Arts Center members.
Arts After School registration is now open for the fall. Classes begin Sept. 9 and are open to children in grades 3-6. An after school snack and busing in the city are included.
