Our goal is to get off the “auto everything” settings and learn to gain creative control of our camera. This course is designed to help you improve your photography and become a skilled artist by learning the “art and science” of 35mm photography and also boost your confidence.

    PREPARING FOR THE SAT

    This course focuses on SAT test-taking skills and strategies. Recent studies have revealed that training and familiarization in test-taking techniques can increase scores.

    While no guarantees or predictors can be made, students will be brought to a level of familiarity and ease to reduce the sort of anxiety which lowers performance.  Model tests will be taken repeatedly to orient students to the format of the test. 

    The course is designed for 11th and 12th graders and consists of eight 2-hour coaching sessions of intensive preparation for the May 2,2020 SAT. This class is co-sponsored by the Barrington Learning Center and Barrington High School.

    FEE: $235.  The fee includes course tuition, the required text and test materials.

    CELEBRATING THE LIFE AND CREATIVE GENIUS OF LEONARDO DA VINCI:

    Image result for leonardo da vinciDoes it seem possible that Leonardo da Vinci died 500 hundred years ago? Lovers of art and creative geniuses from all over the world are gathering at galleries and museums remembering this genius, considered by many art historians to be the most brilliant and talented artist of the ages.

    Let’s gather together to learn and review more about this icon of a man. It will be so rewarding to share and explore his fabulous life.

    What do you think of when you think of Leonardo? Is it the painting of the Last Supper or the Mona Lisa? Do you know he started thousands of paintings but only finished a handful in his long career? Why do you suppose that was? We’ll find out together.

    His approach to life, his inquisitive mind helped him to understand animals and humans and how they worked. His studies enabled him to lay out so many scientific theories. He dissected animals to understand structure for his drawings and paintings. His imagination led him to envision all types of war machines, the working of the human body, plus space and all its mysteries.

    By coming together and researching, as a class, we will have the opportunity to explore and learn about Leonardo daVinci's numerous accomplishments.
