PhotoArts California / PhotoArts Marin were created because of one undeniable truth = group classes in Photography & Photoshop do not work and the best way to reach your craft skills and artistic goals is by taking private classes.


     PhotoArts Marin was created eleven years ago in 2007 and teaches adult and youth classes that range from Masters classes to the basics  The Foundation of the Craft and Art of Photography Visualize: The Art of Seeing and Capturing the Artistic Vision and all levels of Photoshop. These are all in person or combo of in person and live streaming private sessions designed to meet the needs and goals of the aspiring photographer / artist.

 I believe that photography is a truly unique art form capable of both clearly capturing the real world and as a tool for fanciful artistic expressionism.  Every image is as unique as its maker and there is no substitute for the commitment to create the best image possible and photoshop is used to enhance a good image or create something wonderful..  Glen Graves

One-to-one live streaming classes are taught though PhotoArts California. Reaching outside Marin County has been limited by time and distance, now a student can now take  a proven successful photography/photoshop class anywhere in the world.

Four hour Introduction to Photography a/o Photoshop class = $380.00
Eight hours = $650.00
Cost per two hour class after the first is $180.00


Pat Ward is my student from Pompano Beach Florida and she puts the “how” and “why” the PhotoArts California classes work better than I ever could.
