About the Course
Landscapes have traditionally been the subject matter of art for centuries. Why are we drawn to the landscape? How can we express that kinship with the land? We will explore using the iPhone, using various modes, techniques and apps. The camera in your pocket is ready to make gallery-worthy images. You just need the know-how.

"Teaching is merely sharing what you have learned. Sharing that body of knowledge in a pleasant, nurturing, and creative manner is my goal. Everyone has a creative spirit. Uncovering that impulse and delivering methods to access and develop that spirit is primary to my teaching style."
