The first workshop, which Facilitator Martha Grace Gray will lead, will take place on April 15 and is titled Photography. This workshop is perfect for amateur photographers to start and/or improve their basic camera skills. The Photography workshop will cover the basics of photography, selecting the best camera equipment, an overview of the camera's manual settings and how to print pictures. Attendees should bring their camera since the class will saunter around the Madison Campus snapping pictures as they receive friendly critiques from Martha Grace Gray, a professional photographer.
On Friday, April 22, Chris Webb will lead the next workshop titled Stress Management. This workshop will introduce participants to stress management techniques in a fun and interactive manner. The class will explore practices to ease the mind and body through the basic tenants of positive psychology. Anyone suffering from high stress and who has trouble relaxing will benefit from the Stress Management workshop which will also teach attendees about cognitive reframing and how to set positive boundaries.
The final workshop will take place on Friday, April 29 and is titled Grant Writing. In this workshop facilitator Dr. Anthony Mawson will break down the complexities of the grant writing process. Topics that this class will cover include an overview of the basic elements of a grant, transforming an idea into a remarkable proposal, preparing a compelling executive summary, identifying and working with potential funding agencies and officers, how to create and justify your budget and the essential need for letters of recommendation and community support.
