Local photographer Paul Calkins has been teaching classes on digital photography both at the 60+ Activity Center and at Oregon Coast Community College. In Digital Photography – The Basics, students learn how to use different menus and icons to take different types of photographs, as well as basic photographic composition. Digital Photography – Beyond the Basics is for those who wish to learn more about their DSLR interchangeable lens camera.
Artist Peggy Wood taught a glass art class where students created a solar-powered glass mushroom to light their walkway or yard. For Peggy “this is a hobby with much love….and enjoyment. I am from a long line of family artisans that do everything from sewing crafts to ceramics, paintings and much more.”
