Photo Arts Group

Photo Arts Group

The goal of the Photo Arts Group is to help our members achieve their potential in film and digital photography. We encourage sharing photographs for discussion and critique to help each other achieve that potential. Technical, thematic, and topics aspects of photography are discussed at meetings. In warm-weather months, the group also offers on-location photo shoots around the region.  All levels of experience are welcome.

The group meets on the second and fourth Monday of each month at the Wickford Art Association's Gallery, on-location, or through ZOOM!
For more information please email WAAphotoarts@gmail.com.
