Caponi Art Park to host photography workshop

A free digital photography workshop at Caponi Art Park next month will cover intermediate skills.

Michael Proebstle of Legacy Creative Images will teach ways to get better outdoor images with point-and-shoot or SLR digital cameras, then turn students loose to shoot images while standing by to answer questions.

The workshop is 10 a.m. to noon on Aug. 18. All ages are welcome, but those under 15 must be accompanied by an adult.

The park suggests a $5 per-person donation; call (651) 454-9412 to register.
