Compositionally Speaking will be offered on Saturday, Nov. 11, noon to 5 p.m., at Howard Studios, Lebanon, by Robert A. Howard, PPA Certified, M. Photog. CR. Cost is $65. Class is limited to 10 students.

This course will focus on understanding the dynamics of "composition" in photography. Through visual presentations, students will explore the fundamental theories of composition in art and photography.
