Education

Have you ever wondered how a camera works?

Join us on April 15, 10:30 am – Noon to experience the magic of optics and go back in time to play with the very first camera. Learn the basics of photography with Yeiser Art Center and see how you can turn a few simple supplies – a box, a magnifying glass, and some tape – into a Camera Obscura! A Camera Obscura uses the science of optics to project an image onto a surface. Capture stunning images made by the camera obscura with a smartphone or small digital camera. This Creative Experience is free with pre-registration and open to ages 8 & up. Participants will work in pairs to learn about and use a camera obscura. Cameras will be for sale whiles supplies last. Call 270-442-2453 or E-mail office@theyeiser.orgto register!

FILL YOUR SUMMER WITH ART

“Fill Your Summer with Art”

This summer, Yeiser Art Center is teaming up with MAKE to bring you an entire summer catalog of Fine Art Studio and Craft Classes!

Classes will be offered at both locations. Students can sign up for a class at YAC and a class at MAKE (or vice versa) to have a full day of art! A chaperone will walk students in between locations for the next class. Parents can drop of students at one location, and pick them up at the other!
