Workshops
We have many great workshops taking place at the gallery for a variety of age groups and skill levels. The following workshops are available: 

June 5 at 2:00 PM: Join Fine Art Photographer Gary Weekes for an entertaining three-hour Lighting Workshop where he will reveal his techniques for great portraits!
Gary will cover his various lighting styles ranging from single light photography to more sophisticated techniques. Using “light modifiers” you will look at the direction of light, hard and soft lighting, and many simple techniques to get the very best out of your subjects.

Using images taken from The Beaverbrook Art Gallery’s Permanent Collection, you will attempt to replicate the lighting used by past Masters and discover the influences that have shaped Gary on his journey as a Fine Art Photographer.
Tickets for the event are $25. Members receive a 10% discount.
