-ONWARD '10 Selected Entries Announced-
Project Basho is very pleased to announce this year's accepted entries to ONWARD '10. We received a stunning 1666 images from 418 individual artists. From these submissions our juror, Debbie Fleming Caffery selected 73 photographs by 40 artists. A list of selected photographers is available on the ONWARD '10 website.
-Spring Classes and Workshops-
We have been steadily expanding our list of classes and workshops to provide a more comprehensive education program at Project Basho. This spring, we are excited to introduce numerous new and exciting workshops
This semester will be our first time offering Photographic Vision Digital II, taught by Deanna Witman. We've offered the analogue version of this class for film students over the past few years, and are now pleased to offer a digital version to act as a continuation of our very popular Photographic Vision Digital I class.
We are also very excited to invite Jean Miele to our studio to teach two new workshops: Photoshop in Black and White, and Photoshop: The Advanced Course. Miele is a photoshop expert, and internationally known as a photographer and educator. He has taught workshops concerning the "digital darkroom" around the world, and we look forward to offering his new workshops this spring.
As the holidays approach we are also offering Project Basho gift certificates, redeemable for any of our services including classes and workshops. For more information or to make a purchase contact us via email or by phone at 215-238-0928.
