Photo Light Box Demo
Saturday, June 10th 2:00pm
Exciting news! MWCA has purchased a light box for members to photograph their artwork for social media and promotion purposes.
Photographer Gina Bramble will teach an instructional demo with lighting tips and tricks utilizing the new equipment. The lightbox will then be available for members to use anytime the art center is open. Learning how to use the equipment independently by attending this meeting is highly recommended as staff may not always be available to assist.
FREE to members only. If you'd like to join MWCA, drop by the center or learn more HERE
Please contact Juli Tredwell at firstname.lastname@example.org to RSVP or if you have any questions.
