MAPS – Ravalli 2024 Summer Program

This class will lead students through the art and technique of digital photography, emphasizing the diverse perspectives on water usage, conservation, and the natural beauty of the Bitterroot River. Using Photoshop, students will learn to edit selected photographs taken by Spring Session students that depict the subject’s relationship with the river. Participants will also learn how to prepare photos for an art exhibit. By the end of the class, the collection of compelling photo essays will narrate the story of the river’s recreational users, stewards, and the surrounding ecosystem, culminating in a public exhibition in July 2024.
