A Professional Photographer and Art Therapist will help each class member with various tools to assist in their discovery.

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.

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
