Twelve young people from throughout Newaygo County participated in a special four week photography workshop at NCCA-Artsplace. The workshop first began in 2009 to honor Chris Caris, the son of Ted and Jeannie Caris, an avid outdoorsman who enjoyed the art of photography while a student at Fremont High School. The classes were funded by the Christopher R. Caris Memorial Fund at the Fremont Area Community Foundation and taught by Chris Rosenberg of Fremont.
Area art instructors and principals recommended students to participate in the class. Class participants included Sophie Kehr and Lissa Grover from White Cloud; Grace Jones from Cornerstone Christian; Shealynn Mc Clune and Alexis Vanderlinde from Fremont; Grace Boisvert from Fremont Christian; Eric Alvarez and Grace Painter from Newaygo; Trinity Flannery and Camila Kroepel from Hesperia; and Audree Cole and Riley Schwartz from Grant.
Rosenberg provided specialized instruction to the budding photographers on 35 mm SLR cameras, composition, printing, and enlarging their own images. Photos from the class are on display in the NCCA-Artsplace Corridor Gallery through March 31.
NCCA-Artsplace is located at 13 E. Main Street in downtown Fremont. Gallery hours are Monday – Friday, 9:00 a.m. – 5:30 p.m., with Thursday evenings until 8:00 p.m. and Saturday, 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.
