Space is still available in the Dayton Metro Library's new Creative Aging class, Storytelling Through Digital Photography. The class takes place at the Wilmington-Stroop Branch Library, 3980 Wilmington Pike in Kettering, on Tuesdays, 10:00 a.m. – noon, September 9 through November 11, 2014.
Teaching artist Francis Schanberger conducts the photography workshop especially for adults age 55 and over. The class will introduce and review the basics of digital photography, including fundamental camera controls, light, vantage point, frame and creative controls. Cameras will be available for use, or participants can bring their own.
"You've got a story to tell – tell it with photographs," said Julie Buchanan, Older Adult Specialist at the Library. "This class is designed both for absolute beginners as well as digital photographers with some experience."
The class is free but advance registration is required by calling the Wilmington-Stroop Branch Library at 937-496-8966.
"Space is limited, so anyone interested in attending should register soon," said Buchanan.
Creative Aging in America's Libraries is supported by a National Leadership Grant from the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services in collaboration with Lifetime Arts, Inc., AARP Foundation, American Library Association and Westchester Library System.
