Delaware Art Museum - Wilmington DE (10:00 AM EDT)
The Delaware Art Museum offers wonderful photographic opportunities, both inside the museum building and outside: in addition to the architecture and collections within the museum (most collections can be photographed), the large Copeland Sculpture Garden behind the museum provides wonderful shapes and textures, surrounded by lovely trees. In addition there’s an 80-foot diameter medieval labyrinth constructed with 7 tons of Delaware River stone. Finally the stately tree-lined parkway leading to the museum begs for your attention, as does the lovely residential neighborhood of well-appointed historic homes. Entrance on Sundays is free, though you may want to make a small donation when entering or departing. The museum is considering our request to use tripods both inside the museum and in the sculpture gardens. However, the museum’s special exhibition gallery (gallery 10) never allows photography, and flash photography isn’t permitted in any galleries. Click here for website.      The Museum’s Sunday hours are 10 am – 4 pm. Free off-street museum parking is behind the museum (access is to the right of the museum), and there’s usually plenty of free on-street parking on Kentmere Parkway. There’s a simple café in the museum. Carpoolers will depart from the Exton Panera (151 East Swedesford Rd, Exton, PA) at 9:30 am. If you drive directly the Delaware Art Museum the address is 2301 Kentmere Parkway, Wilmington, DE. We will meet at the streetside entrance of the Art Museum at 10 am. (Please let Dean Grantham know if you plan to go, and indicate whether or not you’ll be carpooling.)
Monthly Competition (6:30 PM EDT)

Photojournalism Workshop, Part 1 (10:00 AM EDT)
THE PHOTOJOURNALISM WORKSHOP: Presented by Stephen Williams & Ted Goldman PART 1 OF A 2 PART WORKSHOP THIS WORKSHOP IS FULL.  NO MORE RESERVATIONS WILL BE ACCEPTED. Each participant will create a photo essay to tell a story with pictures and words. There is a limit of eight for this workshop which will be held on two Saturdays three weeks apart. This workshop is based upon the elements of telling a story with the camera and the participant’s or their subject's words as a narrative.  Pre-work: Participants will develop possible story ideas to discuss at the first session. As a guide, participants will be given links to several works by the father of the photo essay W. Eugene Smith, who is best described by his work with LIFE magazine. In Eugene's own words: "Let Truth Be The Prejudice”; "You must get close and then get closer...and always, always get the picture.” April 6th - Session 1 (10 AM – 12 Noon): Stephen and Ted will present learnings and suggestions based on their own work to help guide participants. There will be an open discussion about the participant’s story ideas and a Q&A. April 27th - Session 2 (9AM – 12 Noon): Presentations (15 minutes maximum); discussion about the experience. If this sounds like an ambitious learning experience...it is that.. but certainly one that will enrich the participants in their knowledge of another way to use the camera.
