    Project: Photo with Richard Kiraly

    The Happily Never After Villain-themed project! (Sept 12 through Oct3)

    This 4 week series will be themed around "Happily Never After," a showcase finale for an Arts Center of Kershaw County class taught by Amanda Britt. Our 4-week project is for Ages 10 through Adult. We will be creating photographs and video shorts to fit the theme of Halloween and Villains and things that go bump in the night!

    Your Mission: To have fun and to be creative! In this project-based online series, you will receive weekly missions for focused studies of specific subject matter that will build your basic photography skills!

    Entry-Level Class: designed to be fun and interactive - students work independently (parental supervision recommended for minors).

    Each session will focus on one single theme, technique, or subject. Students will be given a photo assignment weekly and will take the whole week to complete a final piece or pieces. Sessions will be a live online (Zoom) session, which will include a presentation and review of the piece(s), discussion, and constructive critique, followed by a new Mission.

    Each session is designed to be modular so that students can take on a single project, or a series of projects. Pricing is available per-class or per-four week session. Can't make the LIVE Session time slot? Purchase the Single-Class option for access to the recorded sessions at your convenience. Projects will continue indefinitely as long as there is interest.

    All equipment is allowed. There are no special supplies or equipment required other than access to a portable camera such as a cell phone, laptop, instant, film, digital, or video camera. This series is for ages 10 and up.

    Richard Kiraly's previous photography experience includes Fuji, Olympus Cameras and Hewlett Packard Digital Publishing Solutions. Richard's primary goal is to celebrate and document the Arts in all of its forms. A South Carolina resident since 2001, he has worked with Town Theatre, Trustus Theatre, and The Arts Center of Kershaw County to spotlight theatrical art and artists from all over the state and beyond.
