The Mariposa County Arts Council is pleased to continue F/STOP, a photography program aimed at Mariposa residents 55 years of age and older. This program consists of a series of free, 5-week digital photography workshops focused on the artistic elements of photography and is designed to promote creativity, self-expression, and increase comfort with digital technology. Each workshop includes: lessons on the elements of art, principals of design, composition, and lighting; facilitated discussions; a photographic field expedition/field trip; and guidance on presenting the artwork created in the program. Images from the workshops are exhibited each year at the conclusion of the program.Email phillips@mariposaartscouncil.org if you would like to be added to the F/STOP digital newsletter for advanced information on our next season of programming.
