Collaboration with The Art Base
Using the farmyard animals at Rock Bottom Ranch as your models, and the nearby flower gardens, streams, trees, and plants as a spectacular backdrop—learn what makes a good photograph (composition, contrast, lighting, etc.) and examine the power of photography to capture and tell stories about the world around you. Using photography editing apps and professional printing services, you choose the feature images and create your own book—be the artistic director, artist and editor all in one!
*To properly prepare for the class, students must bring their own iPad, iPhone, tablet, or smartphone with a working camera. We expect that Students are familiar with their own device and bring it in a sturdy, protective case along with a charger. A list of applications to download will be emailed to participants in advance of the start date.
What To Bring:
Pack a backpack with snack, lunch, reusable water bottle, rain jacket, warm layer, sunscreen, hat, and sunglasses. Please remember to label everything. Wear appropriate clothing and sturdy, closed-toed shoes - no open-toe sandals!
How To Get There:
Please walk, bike, bus, or carpool to ACES at Rock Bottom Ranch whenever possible! Parking is extremely limited and alternate transportation is fun and saves the planet.
BIKE BOARD CHALLENGE: In the summer, every time you come to the Ranch in something other than your own car you will earn a sticker to place on our Bike Board. Bike Board participants are entered to win great prizes all summer long including local gift certificates, bike accessories, ACES classes, reusable bags, and more.
PARKING LOT: Limited parking is available for Rock Bottom Ranch visitors only. Please park efficiently. No parking in ACES lots during closed hours. We are an IDLE FREE organization.
