SOAR students will work closely with St. Lawrence University students to learn about the basics of photography and how it communicates a social, personal and visual narrative. Participants will be expected to engage and share on a personal level with St. Lawrence University students, with the end goal of creating and collaborating in making a photographic book. SOAR participants will learn how to digitize photographs, use their digital cameras and learn basic photo editing skills.

Sarah Knobel is a photographer and video artist. Her work has been featured in exhibitions nationally and internationally, which include those in Miami, Seattle, Portland, Kansas City, Washington DC, Germany, Belgium and Greece. Sarah holds an MFA in Photography from the Design Architecture Art and Planning Program at the University of Cincinnati and a BFA in Studio Art from Texas State University. She is currently an assistant professor of art at St. Lawrence University.

NOTES: 1) Participants must have access to a digital camera with manual capabilities. If in doubt about that, email the presenter – 2) It is expected that SOAR members will attend all sessions of the course and be willing to meet and work with SLU students on creative photography projects outside of class time. 3) Links will be provided later for the SOAR website.
