Spring Has Sprung: Santa Monica’s Camera Obscura Lab Offers Workshops

Santa Monica’s Camera Obscura art lab is offering several events and workshops in the month of April. Studio residents Debra Disman and Huong Nguyen’s last public events will also take place this upcoming month, including their grand finale on April 14th.

That’s going to be a very busy day- Camera Obscura has partnered with Otis College again to bring aplein air drawing session to the north lawn in honor of their annual Kite Festival, which will be taking place on the beach below. Brendan Constantine is back that afternoon as well – and if you are interested in writing, Dinah Berland’s current series offers drop-in participation. Get inspired by studying works of art in her ekphrastic poetry class!
