Summer 2021 Session Links:
Let’s Paint a Mural with Marcia Harvey
$135, 8:00am – 12:00pm, Room 4710 + Outdoors
This mural painting camp will beautify our world by creating a wall-sized guide to the flora and fauna of Cuesta College’s local ecosystem. Students will be collaboratively painting some of the common sights and sounds of the area; sycamore leaves, grackles, cottontail rabbits, garter snakes, California poppies, and more! This will be a very hands-on experience; painting a mural is a fun and gratifying experience, as the ordinary wall is transformed into a pictorial space under our very eyes!
Storytelling: The Dance of Written Words and Images with Joe Hewes-Clark
$135, 8:00am – 12:00pm, Room 4730
It's hard to know which came first: cave paintings or oral history. With the evolution of these distinctly different methods of storytelling, our world and the history of our cultures are made infinitely more rich. Through our practiced writing and honing of drawing skills students will marry the two to create their own unique blend. May our histories be self-determined!
Exploring Electricity with Amanda Shere
$135, 8:00am – 12:00pm, Room 4750
Explore and build models of various ways to produce electricity. Including: The Sun, wind, water, and fruit! Students will have the opportunity to experiment and make improvements on the models. Examples of projects are solar car, lemon battery, wind turbine and hydropower turbine.

Darkroom and Film Photography with Richard Fusillo
$135, 8:30am – 12:30pm, Room 4740
For this intensive class, we will be focusing on traditional darkroom techniques & film photography starting with the basic idea of light and photograms and ending with alternative processes such as cyanotypes and double exposures. By the end of this session, students will have an understanding of the history of photography and how to develop and print their own 35mm photographs. We will also be incorporating some digital work as well, by doing some technical exercises at the beginning of each class session. Students must have access to a digital camera: a DSLR, a point and shoot, a mirrorless system, or a cellular phone can work.

Explore the nuts and bolts of starting a business, develop a business plan, create business cards and advertisements, and start making money!
