Class Description

This class, for adults aiming to improve their drawing skills, focuses on observational drawing techniques, shading and composition. Pam Calore, a teacher and artist, had difficulty finding an after-work drawing class…so she created her own! Join the current Key West High School teacher and PhD student, as she turns her attention to adult learners. 

Meet Your Instructor

As a documentary photographer and artist, Pam Calore uses a variety of mediums in her work. Her documentary work focuses on the historical and social issue of labor, immigration, and trade. Her documentary film Total Truck has been aired on the LaborLink TV Channel (LLTV) in La Jolla, California, UCSD, and was featured alongside her mixed media work titled “Personal to Public” in a one-person exhibit at the Workman Circle in Los Angeles, CA. An extension of this research led to her photographing the mills and factories in New England. The photographs became the exhibit titled “Time has Left its Mark,” which was featured in a one-person show at the New Bedford Art Museum in 2011.” A photo essay titled “Invisible Cities” was also produced.
