What you'll learn in this composition class:

Discovery Green is a new public park in downtown Houston at 1500 McKinney St. at Avenida de las Americas across from the George R. Brown Convention Center. It was opened in 2008 to provide a performance and recreation area on the east side of downtown and an attractive entrance to the Convention Center. In addition to a small performing stage, it features Kinder Lake for rowing and kayaking, several venues for food and drink, and a field of fountains which in the winter doubles as an ice skating rink. In addition to concerts and movies on the stage, most weekends it hosts festivals of varying sizes. Unlike much of downtown which is quiet on the weekends, Discover Green is always abuzz with families and singles enjoying this green oasis.

Closest to I-59, the Green is accessible from all major freeways. There is ample paid parking underground and on the surrounding streets for drivers and a short walk for passengers of the Metro Light Rail Red Line — get off at the McKinney stop and walk east. For bus riders there are two stops directly in front of the Convention Center as well as many others in the vicinity.

Classes usually meet at the White Promenade bridge over Kinder Lake, near the Lake House.

About This Course

Each Composition in the Field class begins with a talk with one of our experienced instructors, and then you and your fellow students take a stroll through one of a variety of photogenic locales (in any of the 20+ cities the DPA encapsulates). There is street photography, magnificent interiors, farmers markets, zoos, landscapes, and more, photos of which are included within. These photos are a mix of student and instructor images in many different venues and cities across the United States and Canada.

You will have fun in the three hour session, learn to shoot strategically, get more interesting photos of the event, and walk away with a foundation to improve your photographs in the future, whether you’re traveling, or at a birthday party and everywhere in between.

Please note – if a class must be cancelled due to weather or other circumstances beyond our control we will be happy to work with you to reschedule.  If you should need to cancel and require a new class date, contact us. A $25 transfer fee will be imposed without a 3 day notice before the scheduled class.
