Picture Spring
30 days of soulful seasonal celebration

Picture Spring is a 30-day self-paced e-class that will encourage and inspire you to use photography to celebrate the season of new beginnings while honoring and nourishing your creative spirit. With a new email and fresh perspective in your inbox each morning, you'll use the daily photo prompt to help open your mind and guide your lens to see and capture your life and the world around you. Whether you are an expert photographer, or just starting out, this project will help you see things in a completely new light.

By focusing on the beauty that surrounds you — even amidst the dishes and laundry, deadlines and demands — your outlook will shift and change. Your photographs will become an extension of who you are and how you see the world as you discover your true inner photographer. Your camera will not only become a valuable tool and trusted companion, but a reminder to slow down, appreciate your life and take pride and joy in your creativity.

Because photography offers instant gratification — with only a single click to capture an image — it's the perfect artistic medium for a sustainable daily project. The goal with Picture Spring however, is to not only prompt you into taking a photo each day, it's to help elevate that click into a mindful meditation, an act of gratitude, a narrative of your heart. This will ensure that each picture you create will be its own piece of art — a treasure in itself. Nothing else required. No end result to work toward; just your own unique vision personified in a photograph. For these 30 days, that alone is enough.

"Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time."
Thomas Merton

Amidst the journey of Picture Spring, it is my hope that you will let yourself get lost in the pure joy and satisfaction of expressing yourself photographically. And I'm pretty sure that along the way, you will find your authentic, creative, amazing self in the process.

Please Note: Tracey's popular workshop, Picture Spring, is now available as a Self Paced class! You will receive the same inspirational emails for 30 days, but there will be no teacher interaction. To participate in Tracey Clark's class you'll only need a camera, any camera. Beyond that, you already have everything you need.

Important information about Self-Paced Projects at Big Picture Classes!
Self-Paced Projects are instant download classes that allow you to participate at BPC anytime! These classes are different from our interactive workshops. There are no starting or ending dates -- you may enroll at any time. This flexibility also means, that there will not be the level of teacher and student interaction that we enjoy in our workshops. You will receive handouts to print and an audio file to listen to, but there are typically no message boards or chats.

Even though these classes offer less interaction, you are not alone! If you need help, email us at admin@bigpictureclasses.com. Enjoy!
