Ten 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 Wyatt Gunnett and Sierra Thompson from White Cloud; Ashley Munch and Ann Cochran from Fremont; Ayla Schneider and Jessica Bennett from Fremont Christian; Kari Huston and Nikkole Frens from Hesperia; and Cyanne Schuitema and Reagan Archbold 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 May 18.
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.
