Take wedding photography like the pros
Learn one of the most challenging photography fields of all; weddings. Find out what you need to do before, during and after the special day.
Instructor Mike Nelson explains,
“We teach the true artistry of wedding photography and editing. After the wedding is over, the dresses and suits are put away, and the flowers are gone, the photographs live on for generations. It’s worth doing right”.
Nelson says the classes ‘attract a wide range of students across all ages which makes it more fun’.
Music across generations
Samford Academy of Arts offers a well-rounded musical experience for students of all ages.
It’s not too late to learn at the same time as your kids or grand kids! The Music classes emphasize performance, technique, theory, composition and appreciation in the disciplines of piano, violin, cello, voice and other instruments.
Private and group classes in piano are offered for students from the age of 4 up. Get the whole family involved.
Enhance your creative side
The Arts classes provide ‘opportunity to explore new interests and learn from a wide variety of artists in our community’.
They include an antiques course with veteran instructor Dan Brooks to classes in ceramics, acrylics, painting, art for teens (grades 6-8), art for children (grades 1-5) , stained glass, calligraphy, creative writing, and novel writing.
Maybe we could write a novel using calligraphy?
