YAM adult art classes are designed for everyone from beginners to artists who want to hone their skills. Every class is taught by a professional artist who is eager to share their creative process and techniques. These museum-based classes are perfect for lifelong learners and creative members of our community. All adult art classes are available for OPI credits. YAM Museum Members receive 20% off all adult education courses.

This beginner’s workshop covers the early photographic process of tintypes. Beginning with the use of large-format and medium-format cameras with direct positive paper images, we then progress to making ferrotypes, a safe tintype dry plate process. Students will learn about basic photographic chemistry and techniques for making images with extremely low ISOs (c. 2). Each student will leave the class with a tintype portrait of themself or a loved one as well as a number of other unique photographic objects that they have collaborated in the making of.
