Silver jewelry making classes are taught by artist and designer goldsmith, Dan Balk. Dan is inviting couples to hand make jewelry in sterling silver. Participants discover new abilities to design and create jewelry under the guidance of a professional jeweler. This course is a great opportunity for partners to explore each others creative and artistic side as each makes a piece of jewelry for each other. Participants may customize their experience by each creating a one-of-a-kind pendant or ring. This course concludes with complementary offerings of champagne or wine, as well as fruit and chocolate. Dan Balk, has opened his jewelry studio for basic silversmithing classes 7 days a week, Monday through Friday from 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM, Saturday and Sunday from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM. No experience is needed. Reservations are required. Each class is approximately 4 hours long. Classes are one-on-one. A deposit of $100.00 will reserve your date.

The class is $450.00 per couple, and supplies are included. Couples will go home with their finished jewelry. Gemstones may be added for an additional fee. In the Couples Jewelry Class, participants will develop hands-on education in hand fabrication using raw materials. Partners will gain awareness and practice in shop safety, design, creating silver sheets and wires, soldering and forming, and metal cutting. Dan's classes focus on projects that students can complete and develop confidence. "America has a rich heritage of fine craft that is in jeopardy of being lost." Dan offers his classes, "In an effort to preserve the traditional cultural arts of American crafts people. In an age where people are increasingly dependent upon computers, machines and mass produced goods, I believe it is extremely important to retain the time-honored skills of hand craftsmanship that have been passed down through hundreds of years from teacher to student." -Dan Balk Metalsmith and artist Dan Balk, designs and fabricates every piece of jewelry from raw materials from his studio in Tampa, Florida. Each piece is one of a kind, designed by Dan, who creates his own sterling silver, 18K, and 14K alloys that he then fashions, mills, forges, fuses, and brazes into miniature sculptures for personal adornment. Dan selects and sets each stone, often performing his own lapidary work on select stones. Dan has complete contact and artistic connection with each piece of fine art jewelry from concept to collection.

This workshop takes a unique approach to the world of photography introducing beginner and intermediate level photographers to the essential techniques of exposure and composition as well as photographic documentation through the use of presentations, weekly photo assignments, and one on one guidance. Students photograph a variety of subjects in and around the museum, including portraiture, landscapes, and architecture. This class is for people of all ages with little or no experience in photography, or for those seeking to renew their knowledge of the basics.
You will be instructed on:
– Fine Art Photography
– Camera & Lens
– Automatic vs Manual Shooting Modes
– Color Temperature (White Balance
– Focus and Depth of Field
– Light and Exposure
– Freezing Action vs Creating Movement
– Composition, Content and Photographic Storytelling
– Basic Photo Editing
– Online Sharing
Prerequisite: There are no prerequisites for the workshop; however, since all camera models have different control layouts, students are expected to know how to find and adjust three exposure settings in their camera: aperture, shutter speed, and ISO. While a DSLR camera is preferred, any digital camera capable of manual control of aperture, shutter speed, and ISO will work. Students with cameras that have no way to control these three exposure settings (i.e.: point-and-shoot cameras) will not get the full benefit of the workshop. A tripod is also strongly recommended.

Dan's classes focus on projects that students can complete and develop confidence. "America has a rich heritage of fine craft that is in jeopardy of being lost." Dan offers his classes, "In an effort to preserve the traditional cultural arts of American crafts people. In an age where people are increasingly dependent upon computers, machines and mass produced goods, I believe it is extremely important to retain the time-honored skills of hand craftsmanship that have been passed down through hundreds of years from teacher to student." -Dan Balk Goldsmith and artist, Dan Balk, designs and fabricates every piece of jewelry from raw materials from his studio in Tampa, Florida. Each piece is one of a kind, designed by Dan, who creates his own sterling silver, 18K, and 14K alloys that he then fashions, mills, forges, fuses, and brazes into miniature sculptures for personal adornment. Dan selects and sets each stone, often performing his own lapidary work on select stones. Dan has complete contact and artistic connection with each piece of fine art jewelry from concept to collection. The first class is $225.00 per person and includes all supplies. Students will go home with their finished silver piece. This can be a one day basic introduction for the novice to a 4 day basic intensive for the crafter/artisan. A $50 non-refundable reservation fee is needed to reserve your date. The balance is due by the date of the class. For more information call Nataly Balk at (813) 728-4325. [less-]

This workshop takes a unique approach to the world of photography introducing beginner and intermediate level photographers to the essential techniques of exposure and composition as well as photographic documentation through the use of presentations, weekly photo assignments, and one on one guidance. Students photograph a variety of subjects in and around the museum, including portraiture, landscapes, and architecture. This class is for people of all ages with little or no experience in photography, or for those seeking to renew their knowledge of the basics.
You will be instructed on:
– Fine Art Photography
– Camera & Lens
– Automatic vs Manual Shooting Modes
– Color Temperature (White Balance
– Focus and Depth of Field
– Light and Exposure
– Freezing Action vs Creating Movement
– Composition, Content and Photographic Storytelling
– Basic Photo Editing
– Online Sharing
Prerequisite: There are no prerequisites for the workshop; however, since all camera models have different control layouts, students are expected to know how to find and adjust three exposure settings in their camera: aperture, shutter speed, and ISO. While a DSLR camera is preferred, any digital camera capable of manual control of aperture, shutter speed, and ISO will work. Students with cameras that have no way to control these three exposure settings (i.e.: point-and-shoot cameras) will not get the full benefit of the workshop. A tripod is also strongly recommended.
