Valerie, I belong to Houston Photographic Society (hpsonline.org) and Houston Center for Photography (hcponline.org). Have taken classes at The Glassell School for the past 3 or 4 years (http://www.mfah.org/destination2.asp...=&currentPage=). Have also done workshops with Texas Photographic Society, Texas PP of A, Rocky Mountain School, Nancy Rotenberg/Natural Tapestries and will be doing an alt process workshop with Christopher James the end of this month. The Woodlands has a pretty active photo club. HCP has ongoing programs throughout the year including critque/discussion groups and if you have the time Glassell has some interesting classes. Among the many classes they are offering this summer, they are offering one on the history of photography which will include visits to the collection at the MFA. Great stuff! Bill Barber
