NOTE: This class will be held in a live online format using the Zoom Platform
Class meets Saturday 1-4pm Eastern
This class is an introduction to photography based objects and how artists have incorporated imagery in installations, assemblages and objects. We will look at the history of the photographic object as well as how contemporary artists are expanding their photographic practice into new and unconventional ways.
This class will give you the inspiration needed to move personal imagery in new and exciting ways. Dawn will explain special supplies and techniques to achieve some of these effects, like combining photography with transfers, dry and wet medias, digital imagery, box building and bookbinding and using found objects to incorporate into the creation.
We will also explore the deeper meaning of tangible objects, why artists are drawn to them and how they can be applied in your own personal work. All of these will be explained and demonstrated in depth in the September workshop on campus.
By enrolling in this half day course, you will earn a $60 credit toward Dawn’s full-length workshop.
