The Viewpoint Student Program was created to provide students with an educational resource that gives them valuable industry information, feedback, and support in a semi-professional environment. Viewpoint is offering a program to help high school and college students grow and build their art, meet other students in their chosen field of study who share their interests, and join a thriving organization dedicated to the photographic arts.
The Photo program at ARC does have a membership that allows students to attend many of these lectures/opportunities for free. For students interested in becoming a Member of Viewpoint, the annual fee is only $20 and entitles members to attend all monthly Print and Portfolio nights; to submit their work for possible exhibition in the annual Members Show, field trips organized for members and discounted fees for various workshops and travel trips, and invitations to the Member Receptions at each new monthly exhibit.
About the Student Lectures: Student lectures are intended to supplement a student’s school experience by offering talks and demonstrations on areas of photographic interest, topics and techniques. Lectures and demonstrations are given by people experienced in their field. Viewpoint strives to make these lectures relevant to areas of study. Suggestions for speakers are always welcome.

Thursday, February 15, 2018, 7 p.m. – 9 p.m.
Linda Clark Johnson–a mixed-media artist and teacher living, working and exhibiting in Sacramento, will speak on her techniques of cyanotype printing. Linda strives to create artwork that is atmospheric, layered and intriguing, quietly celebrating the beauty of the natural world. Linda prints with natural plant materials outdoors in the sun. In her current work, Linda is pushing the limits of the process and altering the traditional color–cyanotype prints are typically a deep Prussian blue–by exposure times, adding extra chemicals, and using eco-printing techniques. She further alters her prints with watercolor, graphite, acrylic, colored pencil, ink, or collage as if they are paintings to achieve desired results
