- Is there a common thread that is woven through your body of work ?

A Professional Photographer and Art Therapist will help each class member with various tools to assist in their discovery.
- What story can be told of our images?
- What hidden treasures can we unlock by looking at the patterns that are woven throughout our work?This class will go beyond the functions of the camera and look at how each participant can begin learning new methods of exploring the world around them. The camera is a bridge that provides a way to cross over and explore our imagery up close and personal. Participants will be asked provide their own images, which will be used as a starting point for the class.
Participants will be asked provide their own images, which will be used as a starting point for the class.
We will look at three specific types of images that you have taken. A subject, a passageway (windows, doors, openings) and a landscape. Theses three images will form the cornerstone of our class and be used as tool toward uncovering hidden treasures. Each class member will create an actual map using provided art material and by compositing their images to form a picture.
This map will serve as a symbol and help ignite a personal transformation. Please bring to class examples of these images that you have taken and your camera. The images should be printed at least 8×10 and can be printed with any printer. The images will be cut and glued onto the map

ASMPDC is thrilled to be hosting the June “Combined Happy Hour” with WPOW (#wpowdc), APA DC, WHNPA and DCVC.
This is the annual Pixels & Pints event. It will be held at Local 16, on Tuesday 6/21, upstairs in the “lounge room”, starting at 6:30PM. Instagram images with the tag #pixelspints2016 will be projected for everyone too see – So everyone start using the hashtag: #pixelspints2016 starting today.
This normally goes without saying, but keep the #pixelspints2016 pictures to strictly camera phone images. This hashtag is not to post portfolio or promo pieces. It’s just for fun. There will be Instagram pics scrolling on a projector while we enjoy drinks.
There will be merchandise available, so that is even more incentive to show up.
Hope to see you there!
