Caitlin Perkins Director of Continuing Education + Special Programs
When people ask me how to get started on a path to creativity I stress the importance of quantity. Want to learn to draw? Make a ton of drawings. Don’t get stuck trying to make one perfect painting, or develop writer’s block from anxiety about getting the pen to page – instead, welcome the mistakes, learn from them, and enjoy your journey of becoming a maker.
To get you started, I am offering a special tuition rate of $295, on a selection of Continuing Education courses. I’m certain our courses will delight you. Courses include:
*Tuition for Making Videos for the Web is $500.

The internal politics established by the regime of the revolution and the economic embargo by the United States of America have led to an evident stagnation in the development of Cuba. The lack of basic elements in health, education, construction and technology are notorious when walking the streets of Havana. Nevertheless, the gradual opening of relations is a sign of hope for better times for the new generation of Cubans.
The artistic project #Cuba #ContraRevolucion shows us life in Havana after 56 years of revolution and embargo. It is a photographic record realized in long hours of walking the streets of the city, in casual meetings or long talks with the old ones of Cuba, those of the revolution. #Cuba
#ContraRevolucion includes images in digital and analog format, some of them as experimental photography.
About Jean Solar
Jean Solar is a Chilean artist-photographer based in Philadelphia. He is an electronic engineer, who worked mainly on telecommunication projects in Santiago, Chile. He moved to Vancouver, Canada in 2013, and began to study art and photography at the Emily Carr University of Art and Design. He also taught several art workshops at the UBC Learning Exchange, a community organization in Vancouver downtown.
In 2015, he moved to Philadelphia, where he is pursuing a Digital Photography Certificate at The University of the Arts. As well, he is attending multiple art institutions in Philadelphia, including Fleisher Arts Memorial, Philadelphia Photo Arts Center, and Philadelphia Photo League.
Jean's earlier work shows us urban architecture and nature in cities. Recently, his photography is a record of the urban life, cultural diversity, and the human condition. Most of his pictures are in black and white to present strong images and to emphasize emotion; in addition, he is also exploring traditional and alternative photographic processes.
