In our library system, we focus on lifelong learning and offering convenient and engaging programs for all ages that inspire curiosity and support individual growth. The Art of Digital Photography program was an eight-week, beginning photography series for adults 55 and older. The program ran from April 9 to May 28, 2015, on Thursdays from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
Participants were instructed by a local teaching artist on the technical and artistic sides of digital photography. Homework assignments were given, and program attendees took fields trips so they could practice their skills. The program finished with a photography showcase and reception.
When an Ohio public library noticed the local senior center didn't offer photography classes, it rose to the challenge.
