August 19@10:00 AM - 3:00 PM


Join us for an all day, all-ages, fun and educational photo activity day! Youth 14 and under must be accompanied by an adult (but don’t worry, this is just as interesting for grown-ups!). We will all build a room-sized camera obscura, make our own pinhole cameras, and create lumen prints and cyanotypes outside. Everyone will leave with artwork, a lens-less camera, and a new appreciation for light and optics.

with Mike Fletcher & Julia Raite

Currently Mike is the Facility Manager for Waterfall Arts and also the coordinator of the life drawing program.

Julia Raite hails from the Wild West, having spent her childhood growing up in the remote Rockies of Idaho and deserts of Arizona. She earned her degree in Professional Photography from Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara, California, then made her way up the coast to Seattle where she worked and taught for Photographic Center Northwest. She specializes in analog and alternative process photography, the subject matter inspired by a life full of travel and transition. She currently lives in a solar powered cabin with an acre of garden and works in the office at Waterfall Arts.
