Why TSAS? The passion and dedication for the Arts is what drew me to TSAS. In a time where many institutions are ending photography programs and taking out darkrooms, I admire a school that sees the importance and the potential of photography as a venue for expression for students. I believe it’s not just a skill but an avenue of learning history as well as making it.
Interesting Fact I have spent my free time over the last few years converting a school bus into a mobile tiny house and through photography, I’ve been documenting the process.

Ex Cineribus

Ex Cineribus is TSAS's art anthology. This is a student-led class that requires students to put together a quality product from start to finish.

Photography I

Students will learn the basics of black-and-white photography including camera operation, film exposure, processing, composition, studio set-up, basic lighting, and printing. Students will learn to use all parts of the darkroom for processing and printing black and white film. They begin the course building their own pinhole camera and will be exposed to different terms, techniques, and various artist's works. Students will present their artwork to the class for exhibition and criticism. Returning students will expand on their darkroom skills; they will develop a portfolio of their images and learn to manipulate their images in the darkroom. Students are encouraged to bring their own cameras but class cameras will be available for check out.

This is a two-semester class commitment, Photography I prior is suggested but not a required. Yearbook may seem like a class, but it's much more. This class is a student-run project that requires dedication and creativity. Student's actively build every aspect of the yearbook including student portraits, event photography, editing, graphic design, marketing, communication, writing, reporting and interviewing. This class does include after-school activities and events that need to attended.
