Field trips: each day we will explore one of the most scenic areas in the world, Rockport and Cape Ann including the Atlantic Path, Halibut Point, fishing boats, Crane Estate, and more.  As we follow Covid-19 guidelines, a more detailed agenda will be made depending on contact allowances.

Immersing in the area and movie night inspiration: we will meet and chat with locals and also learn about the history of the area while staying in a grand home located right on the ocean.  We will watch films about Cape Ann like The Perfect Storm and Manchester by the Sea, and Moonrise Kingdom (which was filmed in a period home like the one we are staying in).

Food: we will have a breakfast buffet, lunch box fixings and fun themed dinners cooked at the house.  Jenny is in charge of all the meals.  Menu requests accepted prior to start but we cannot accommodate special diets due to the small class size (except vegetarian).

Photo lessons: we will have exercises daily that train the eye to make pleasing shots and also train the mind to tell the visual story of Rockport and Cape Ann.  We will edit in Lightroom and have a final review of our work Thursday night.

Staff:  Jenny is the main teacher and oversees everything.  Potentially (depending on Covid-19) one staff photographer will be brought in to run a couple of classes.  Night time activities will be run by the group like charades, monopoly and card games.  

Sleeping:  most rooms accommodate 2 girls and there is one single room.
