Classes at Agonist Gallery

Cure Me! (Note Changes)

A competitive, student-centered STEM project, "Cure Me!" provides a life science alternative to robotics programs. Students will attempt to build a "patient" that is unable to be killed by disease. The "patient" will be a digital model or a VR game that will respond to disease inputs in a way that reflects how well they have prepared it. They will test their models against other teams in competitions that will test the depth of their knowledge, preparation, and creativity. Students will be expected to apply their knowledge of 100 diseases compiled from national registries, such as the CDC, CMS, and NIM. We'll have our first meeting as soon as 3 students register. Contact the Director with any questions. Register with payment here. $35 per session.

History of Photography

This class will discuss invention, technological innovation, rebellion, creativity, sociology, culture, and vision, among other topics. From Daguerre in 1839 to abstract micrographs, photography has a fascinating history. We'll discuss the major figures and how their work influenced the field. Contact the Director to make an appointment for your first class, or Register Here, then make an appointment.  $35 per class.

Biology of Cancer

On the cellular and genetic levels, tumors use biological features similar to those of healthy cells. What are these features? How do our best therapies work? What are some promising new approaches? Contact the Director to make an appointment for your first class, or Register Here, then make an appointment. $35 per class. 

Bird Photography

This is an illustrated seminar for improving your ability to make striking images of these magnificent animals. Discover new places  and share your favorites with others in the class.

Dance Photography

At least one dancer will collaborate with us. Two hour session. Please allow one week to schedule a dancer for the shoot. Register here, then make an appointment. $105


Dancing the Appian Way

Interpreting the landscape through the twin perspectives of Dance and Photography has a long and fascinating history.

Contact the Director to make an appointment for your presentation, or Register Here, then make an appointment. $35. 

Class Policies

Classes are personalized in time, content, and number. Choose when to meet, for how long, and how often. One class generally meets for one hour. Unless otherwise noted, as in some workshops, pricing is for one hour of instruction. Three sessions of the same class on the same day would count for three hours. 


The level of instruction ranges from high school to adults. 


Class Size: 1 - 5 students. You can take a class by yourself, as in a tutorial, or wait until several others have signed up who also want a small group experience.


All classes are held at Agonist Gallery, 100 Main Street, Broad Brook


Students under 18 must be accompanied by a parent or other adult supervisor.
