VVAA's First Artist in Residence Grant Recipient: Larry Burton, Photographer

Sponsored by Nevada Arts Council and The National Endowment for the Arts

 February 21 - February 25, 2022

Thanks to the Nevada Arts Council and the National Endowment for the Arts for providing the Grant funds needed to bring Larry Burton, a visual artist specializing in photography, to Mesquite to share some of his knowledge with our community. Larry will be presenting workshops, photo shoots and critiques this week. Sessions are FREE but, you must register as class sizes are limited.

Larry Burton specializes in teaching entry level photography with an emphasis on using simple equipment for beginners. Burton has found that his use of point & shoot cameras can achieve professional results which is especially useful to artists attempting to document & market their work. It is also helpful for students working with 4H, sports or other school projects requiring image making. His intimate 1 to 2 hour sessions can be customized to suit different locations and time frames. Any member of the community can find the material beneficial for marketing community events, participating in social media or photographing family members and events. Recently, he has completed workshops for Great Basin Native Artists, Nevada Magazine, The Nevada Indian Commission, Travel Nevada, and The Nevada Artists Association. Burton’s teaching style is tailored to provide any member of the community the opportunity to find the shooting style that is the most beneficial for them.
