Michael Clark, a photographer for The National Geographic magazine gave a half day talk on Outdoor Adventure Photography on Sunday October 25, 2015 at the SF Art Institute.

I was very lucky to turn 16 this summer on the island of Corsica. The beginning of the summer I spent three weeks with my family in England and Ireland. Then I flew to meet up with friends where I had the best birthday party ever. The day was full of surprises. My moms sent over 30 cards from friends and family, I ate incredible chocolate cake  and I got to go waterskiing in the Mediterranean.

I signed up to demonstrate printmaking at the San Diego County Fair.  Watching me draw a new plate for etching is a little like watching grass grow, and isn’t very engaging for Fair attendees, so this year I wanted to do a demo of monotype printmaking. It is a little more painterly and more important, it works up faster.

Maidy Morhous describes herself as an artist who is dedicated not only to making art with an aesthetic appeal, but also to ensuring that others may derive significant meaning from it.
