Message from the Chair
We are excited to announce the 2018 SPEMA Chapter Pop Up which will be hosted and sponsored by Tyler School of Art on Saturday October 6. The theme for the retreat is Teaching Photography.
The retreat will offer an array of talks, panels, demonstrations and a portfolio throwdown. On Friday October 5, the Tyler Photography Program is hosting a Vendor's Day and all participants in the SPEMA Chapter Pop Up are welcome to attend.
Setting the model with this first event, we will pass along knowledge gained to anyone who wants to hold a similar event in their home school or venue.
