A message UPDATE from BARN’s Executive Director:
Dear BARN community:
In response to updated guidance from the CDC and the Washington State Department of Health, BARN will continue to be closed through the end of April.
However, the real story is how our volunteers are stepping up with creativity and care to make a difference in our community. BARN is working with Bainbridge Prepares and COBI's Emergency Operations Center to organize volunteers who are making face masks for health care providers. Several studios have donated N95 masks and nitrile gloves that they had in stock. We are keeping our commercial kitchen available for organizations like Arms Around Bainbridge to continue to provide healthful meals to families in need. This past weekend, the Woodworking Studio designed and built outdoor food cabinets for Helpline House, so they can continue to provide food to those who need it.
In addition, we are making connections through Internet channels. BARN staff and volunteers are developing ideas for online learning and sharing. Certificate of Craft students and faculty are learning through technology: doing design work and home jewelry projects.
If you want to learn more about how you can contribute to the COVID-19 response, please contact https://www.bainbridgewa.gov/CivicAlerts.aspx?AID=638
Listen to the latest BCB/BARN media arts podcast with Loren Bast of Bainbridge Prepares:https://www.bestofbcb.org/were-all-in-this-together/
Thank you for your understanding and support. I continue to welcome your questions, ideas, or concerns. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
May we all remain healthy and be happily reconnecting in person, soon,
Denise M. Dumouchel, PhD
Join like-minded photo enthusiasts for a morning of shooting and sharing. We will meet at 7:15 AM for coffee at Blackbird Bakery and then set off photographing in the Eagle Harbor Area for 1.5 to 2 hours. During the coffee chat, the instructor will provide a shot list to kick-start and provide ideas for the shooting process.
We will return to BARN at about 9:30 AM to edit our shots down to 3-5 which we will share and discuss. Suggestions for improvements, image edits and next steps will be offered by the instructor. Don’t be shy. This will be a friendly and positive experience whether you are a beginner or a more experienced amateur shooting with your mirrorless / DSLR.
There will be a few iMacs available for image importing, reviewing and selecting. If you have a laptop, please bring it so that we can efficiently sort our images and make them ready for viewing.
If the weather is truly inhospitable, we will reschedule for a future date and you will get a “raincheck”.
7:15 - 7:30 Coffee and Chat at Blackbird Bakery
7:30 - 9:30 Shoot Pics
7:55, 8:55 Ferries Arrive - Depart

Ken Rothmuller has been shooting images since getting his first camera as a teenager. Later in life he had both a B/W and color darkroom before switching over to a digital workflow. More recently he has had the opportunity to study under some great mentors, including: Jay Maisel, Joel Meyerowitz, Eddie Soloway, and Margo Davis.
Ken especially enjoys traveling with his camera allowing him to see new places more deeply, cementing memories and giving him the opportunity to interact with locals.
He has taught photo workshops and photography courses at Cal Poly in San Luis Obispo, CA. You can reach Ken at: email@example.com

While there is nothing inherently wrong with snapshots, you can easily do so much better using a series of simple techniques introduced in this workshop. Creating more lasting images that capture the feeling you had when you took the picture is not hard. It just requires a little more thought before you press the shutter. This workshop will give you the tools and techniques to take your pictures to the next level, independent of your camera from smart phones to DSLR (Digital Single-Lens Reflex). Technical details will be avoided. Instead, we will explore how to see and capture the best images that memorialize and document an event, trip, people and place.
Attendees are encouraged to submit anonymously-sourced (no embarrassment!) photos that may be used as examples in the “before and after” tricks and tips section. You can submit a few photos via email to firstname.lastname@example.org or bring them in on a thumb drive or camera card before class. At the end of the class each attendee will receive a carry-around tip card.
Photo Guided Studio is an opportunity for people to bring in their camera, photo making and editing questions and get guidance from the instructor. Road blocks can removed and skills can be refreshed. Get tips and tricks, advice and encouragement, as well as technical demonstrations.
Join others with an interest in photography to get feedback and help with your photographic process - taking, editing or organizing your photo library. Whether you are a beginner or intermediate photographer, one-on-one and group help with the photo-mentor can move your photographic process to new levels.
Learn how to make computer-assisted, animated movies this summer! Work in small teams, combining skills in art, story telling and computer wizardry to develop and produce a short animated film. Movies will include: animated titles, characters, voice-over narration and music. iPhones and iPads will be used to shoot, edit and record video, as well as add sound. You may bring your own device if you have one.

- Reverse animation to turn chaos into art
- Simple movie editing
