This course is sold out! 

This mentoring and critique program is for people who are serious about their photography and are looking for a place to discuss work in depth, develop ideas more fully, define their goals and plan for how to reach them. The group will meet once a month, October 2017 – May 2018, on a Tuesday morning from 9:30 am to 12:00 noon. Participants will get to know each other and their colleagues’ work, critique new work at each meeting, and help each other make the most of their strengths in photography. The group will be led by Vaughn Sills, who has taught photographers at all levels to think critically about their own work and that of others; she has given portfolio reviews through the New England Women in Photography and has juried exhibitions at galleries in Boston and elsewhere. Vaughn is particularly interested in helping photographers make their images more powerful and meaningful both for themselves and for an audience.

The course meets on Tuesday mornings from 9:30 am to 12:00 noon at The Griffin Museum in Winchester on these dates:
