WORKSHOP FULL (Check in for another date)

Come make a set of colorful landscape paintings with Liana Steinmetz! In this fun workshop, Liana will show you how to use tissue paper and acrylic paint to create a set of small landscape paintings you can frame and hang in your home. They will represent your connection to a special place in nature. 

Instruction will focus on color theory, design, composition choices, media technique and how to incorporate your experience of the land into the painting. 

Liana is a professional landscape painter, who paints outside and in her studio. Making art is her way of honoring her connection to nature - every painting is a giant thank you card for Mother Earth. 

Bring photos to reference and Liana will provide the rest of the materials. Ages 14 and up. It will be a unique experience! Learn more about Liana HERE

Do you have a DSLR camera but struggle with all the buttons and settings?

2 years ago I was sitting where you are right now. At a computer, looking for the perfect class that would teach me how to use my camera to take beautiful pictures of my growing family.

I was itching to get out of AUTO mode, my photos were falling flat of my expectations, and I longed to learn professional tips so I could take better photos on my own.

After taking classes that left me underwhelmed, and reading forums and blogs and books that were overwhelming, I found Momtography™.

This class is a 4 hour jumpstart class to help moms not only love their photos, but love their life too!

I'll teach you the essential beginner tips and tricks needed to beautifully capture your family snapshots. There will be opportunity for hands on practice built in to the afternoon. You’ll leave Momtography™ with tools to successfully document the stories of your life from lazy days at home, to sporting events and extracurriculars, to milestone moments not to be missed.

Date: Saturday March 24 from 1pm-5pm
Where: i heart art Studio Pleasant Hill, CA 

During Momtography™ you'll learn:

*Top 10 tips for taking better pictures of kids
*Basic photo composition rules
*An introduction to exposure including: ISO, Shutter Speed, Aperture and how they work together to make beautiful images.
*What camera settings to use and when to use them
*Basic lens overview
*Backup, printing, & processing overview

Come join in for the class that's been offered for over 6 years to 500+ moms.

Registration is OPEN but spots are limited to just 15 students!
