The following educational programs are offered for members to develop their skills in photography and image processing.  Most courses are taught by volunteer club members who give their time and talents freely. They prepare for their instruction periods so that you may benefit from them. Some classes are presented in a sequence of parts. To gain the maximum benefit from the instruction, workshop participants should make an effort to follow through and attend each class session as it is scheduled.


This season we ask that you register for workshops you plan to attend. This will allow instructors to adequately prepare workshop materials and available workshop space. PLEASE NOTE: Workshops will be available for registration on the first day of the month preceding the scheduled event date. Prior to the registration opening date, a note in the left hand margin will have the message "Registration is Closed". It does not mean that the event is "Full". 


To register you will need to be logged into the Grand Photos membership site and then scroll to the class and click on the register button below the workshop title.  Most workshops are free; when there is a fee as part of the registration process, you may pay online using PayPal or a credit card, or you may print out the invoice and take a copy of the invoice along with your payment to the studio and leave it with the monitor.
