Shooting People Portraits
03/26/15
Sioux City

Photographing people is easy. Put them in sunlight and shoot. Simple. But creating people portraits is not always so simple. Should they sit or stand, will the photo be taken indoors or outside, or will you use available light, flash or a combination of both? During this five-week course, the class will explore different ways of shooting people portraits, both in a studio setting and on location including environmental portraits. You will learn about using flash and other light sources, appropriate methods of coaching people during a shoot, and other simple tricks to create better portraits. Details matter. The class will also study specific iconic portrait photographers, their images and their techniques. Students will need a digital single lens reflex (DSLR) camera or compact camera to shoot portraits during class, both on location at the WITCC campus and in the classroom. Students may also want to use a speedlite or off-camera flash. Equipment will not be provided. Instructor Jerry Mennenga has worked for various daily newspaper publications for over 25 years in Illinois, Texas, Louisiana, California and Iowa. He has covered a variety of photographic assignments at these various publications and has photographed portraits of different subjects in studio settings and on location many times.

Sc Art: Jackson Pollock

Sioux City

"The first Lifelong Learning ""Pollack Tour"" in October was sold out. On April 1, 2015, the Pollack masterpiece, ""Mural"" spends its last day open to the public. Don't miss this chance to see the work either for the first time or for the last time on this exclusive second Lifelong Learning tour. The next stop for ""Mural"" is Peggy Guggenheim's museum in Venice, Italy. Art patron Peggy Guggenheim signed a gallery contract in 1943 with former WPA artist Jackson Pollock to create a mural for the foyer of her New York penthouse. The spectacular result, completed in November 1943, was ""Mural,"" the 8 feet by 20 feet easel canvas masterpiece canvas masterpiece that began the art world's march toward Abstract Expressionism and Modern Art. After a 19-month restoration at the J. Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles, Pollock's original and the University of Iowa's gem has been returned to its original brilliance. According to a Wall Street Journal article, the cleaning and varnish removal have revealed 25 different paint-color applications and definite brush strokes over a long period, resulting in vertical brown stick figures with swirls, curls and loops of various colors. According to Pollock, it's ""a stampede.[of] every animal in the American West."" Insured for $150 million, ""Mural"" is part of the University of Iowa Museum's Legacies for Iowa Collections Sharing Project. The painting was removed to the Getty from the University's museum before the building was damaged by the 2008 Iowa floods. Join Sioux City Art Center's trained docents John Carter and Margot Chesebro as they guide you through this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see Jackson Pollock's ""Mural"" (1943) in such a private and intimate surrounding. This show will help you to ""know"" Jackson Pollock, the man, to see the Abstract Expressionist movement in a new light and to make you extremely proud of the Sioux City Art Center's 100 years of bringing the beauty and truth of art and culture to our city. At the tour's conclusion, we will enjoy a delicious lunch catered by Aggie's. Early reservations are advised for this blockbuster tour."

Photo Safari
04/18/15
Sioux City

"Sometimes when a person is out photographing there are too many choices, and at other times it seems there are not enough. This six-week class is all about taking photographs on location. Its purpose is to help a student ""see"" the possibilities of what to photograph and how to react in the moment. Students are expected to have a basic understanding of their camera for this class and be able to make exposures in the manual and aperture priority modes. Information for learning and understanding technical details of operating a camera is offered in the Making Better Photographs class. Rain or shine - or snow - four sessions of this class will be held outdoors so students can take photographs in natural settings. You'll discover it isn't always the prettiest or perfect subjects that make the best photographs. Often, inspiration can be found in things that are unusual or imperfectly formed. In the first session Jerry will go over basics of composition and lighting and general thoughts about photography. He will also outline the time and location plans for the next four sessions. This will be an opportunity for Jerry to gather e-mails and phone numbers of students so they can stay connected once the class starts meeting on location. Jerry will be present at each site to offer advice and guidance while students are photographing images that capture their attention. In the last session, students will deliver their chosen images of the four location shoots on a thumb drive for viewing by the entire class for discussion and appreciation. Classroom sessions will take place in the Advanced Sciences Building, Room L212 (Lot 4, Entrance #13). Digital single lens reflex (DSRL) cameras or compact cameras are necessary for this course. Students are responsible for supplying their own camera gear. Please see sidebar for class locations. Students are responsible for their own transportation. There will be walking involved so wear comfortable shoes and dress appropriately for the weather. Jerry Mennenga has worked for various newspapers as a photojournalist for over 25 years. He has photographed in a variety of settings and situations and knows the value and pressure of producing images on deadline for publication. He has also learned to see beyond the obvious or to use it to make an interesting photograph of what lies before you."

Historic Buildings Downtown
04/24/15
Sioux City

"Lifelong Learning adventure will begin at the United Center Building that was constructed as a warehouse at 302 Jones Street in 1904. Today, the building is something new for Sioux City; it's a creation of residential lofts on the top three floors and built-out on the bottom three floors as Class A Commercial space. To add charm, renovations left many of the original brick walls and century-old timbers exposed. Dozens of windows were added to let natural light flow inside. The thought was that people would like living near the lively downtown historic district in a structure that preserved the original character of a warehouse. The 21 residential condos range from 850 to just under 2,000 square feet. Three of the condos are two-story lofts. A fitness center on the fourth floor and a roof garden complete the package. The condos offer an ""ease of living"" that's hard to find elsewhere. We will tour both the commercial space and visit one of the United Center's loft apartments. The tour will then proceed to 4th and Jackson at 700 4th Street to a building now known as Stifel-Nicolaus. Similar to the United Center, eighteen market-rates, upscale lofts were created on the upper three floors. All residential lofts are single story, offering both two or three bedrooms and two or 2.5 bathrooms. The units range in size from just over 1,200 to just over 1,500 square feet. The lofts feature breathtaking skyline views, granite counter tops, and soaring ceilings. Again, the group will tour this spectacular living space. The downtown architectural adventure will conclude with a delicious luncheon at La Trattoria Fresca. Our host will be Chef Israel Padilla, the 2014 Winner of Sioux City's ""Best Chef Auction."" "
