Creative Minds – Creative Photography Storytelling

Dates: Tuesdays, June 11 to July 2
Time: 5:30PM-7:30PM
Venue: Online via Zoom

Photography is an art form that captures the beauty and meaning of the world around us. But to master this art, we need to learn its language and grammar. Without knowing the basic elements and principles of photography, we cannot create compelling images. That’s why this workshop with

Hamed will teach you how to use your camera and your creativity to produce stunning photographs. You will learn how to see the world differently and how to adjust your camera settings to suit different situations by learning how to use different lenses, filters, and flash modes to enhance your images.

You will also learn how to analyze and interpret the visual elements  in a photograph, such as shapes, colors, lines, textures, and patterns. These skills will help you to compose your shots with balance, harmony, contrast, and emphasis. You will be able to capture the essence and emotion of any scene or subject and discover how to use your camera as a tool for expressing your vision and creativity.

Thanks to a $1 million investment over four years from the Slaight Family Foundation, Workman Arts is expanding its art training programs throughout the GTA by partnering with Scarborough Arts, Urban Arts, North York Arts, East End Arts, Arts Etobicoke and Lakeshore Arts. The expanded program tackles the prevalence of social isolation in individuals with mental health issues and the lack of opportunities to build lasting social connections through meaningful engagement outside of the mainstream mental health system. Workman Arts’ art training programs are unique in the mental health sector because they do not treat the art class as secondary to the mental health benefits. High-quality art classes across all disciplines are facilitated by instructors with lived experience of mental health and/or addiction issues.

Workman Arts North York Satellite is specifically looking to add programming in North York.
