Introducing a three course workshop where we will learn what photography is and how we can use photography to tell our story to the world. Tamara Torres, a Trenton-based artist who has exhibited her work internationally, picked up her first camera at 12 years old. Her camera and the art she created, offered her many ways of self-expression which opened up exhibition opportunities around the world. Ms. Torres will teach the secrets she has learned through photography and photo-collage, lessons on expression and creativity. Her course will culminate in a private reception of the students’ work!
