From taking their first ever photographs, to spending a day out on the island of Vinalhaven, to dance-offs, this week’s students were busy, to say the least.
Jeanne Wells’ sold-out Beginning Photopolymer Gravure workshop dove hands-first into the art and craft of the practice. (P.S. Jeanne just announced a new on-campus workshop, Photopolymer Gravure Mentorship & Personal Projects!)
Anna Graham’s students in the Film & Video Teachers Workshop were shown best practices and lessons for teaching camera, lighting, sound, and video editing techniques. An amazing result of this class was the creation of a short, hilarious mockumentary that investigated the prospect of beloved local legend André the Seal still being alive – check out the film below.
Brenton Hamilton’s Historic Process Mentoring students had the opportunity to work one-on-one with the master of historic processes himself, to develop their own photographic eye and skillset in the darkroom, regardless of the specific process they utilize.
Over in the writing department, Aaron Hamburger’s workshop The Big Dig: A Fiction Workshop challenged students to take a close look at their work and develop originality, complexity, efficiency, and texture in their writing.
