Our workshops free of charge for local coastal communities residents. We rely on individual donations, crowdfunding campaigns, and grants to purchase facilitate our workshops and cover second-hand digital cameras, art supplies, and travel costs. If you like what we're all about, you can sponsor an upcoming workshop by making a deductible donation by credit or debit card through Paypal (no account needed). We will send you a thank you and receipt!
