Aegean Center Summer Workshops 2012

The Aegean Center is offering three workshops this summer taught by members of the faculty.  John Pack will be teaching The Craft of Digital Photography, concentrating on the art of fine printing.  His expertise is evident on every level and students will gain an enormous amount from his knowledge and generous teaching philosophy.  Jane Morris Pack  will teach a class for alumnae, Painting and Creative Process for painters who know the basics and are ready for more depth. She will  help you unlock creative energies and hidden abilities, help you discover new paths and rev up your idea generator. Jun-Pierre Shiozawa will take you to a new level with his class, The Craft of Watercolor.  Color theory,  brush handling, paper use and observational drawing are covered.  He introduces beginners, guides intermediates and challenges the more advanced.  Paros enhances your journey with her glorious beaches, delicious whole food, charming winding streets and laid back pace.  These workshops give you an almost perfect learning environment away from traffic, advertising and all too familiar distractions.  The workshops will be held from June 10th to June 24th.  For more information please visit
