Every Sunday night, the Writing Center and Library reserve the large classroom in the Science Library to students writing theses (and similar long-term, complex writing projects) to work side-by-side, fueled by snacks, tea, and camaraderie. Join the group Sundays from 8-11 in Merrill 300A (Science Library) or Thursdays from 8-11 p.m. in the CHI (Frost Library).
During January interterm nine students from Amherst, UMass, Smith, and Mount Holyoke participated in “Adventures in Photography,” an interterm course taught by Joshua Baum and Takudzwa Tapfuma. Over the five-day course, students learned fundamental techniques of digital photography: manual exposure, composition, lighting, and post-production. The class ventured into the field for hands-on excursions to the New England Peace Pagoda, Montague Bookmill and downtown Northampton. The images in this exhibit are a selection of work created during the class.
Thank you to the Department of Art and the History of Art, and the Center for Community Engagement for sponsoring the course, and to Valentine Dining Hall for hosting this exhibition.
