Cataloging your work is an essential practice for photographers and visual artists. An art or exhibition catalog is an attractive and easy way to share your work with your audience, prospective buyers, or potential venues for your work like galleries and museums.
This course will primarily utilize Adobe InDesign (2day Intro to InDesign recommended to first time users) for the creation of art and exhibition catalogs. Students should be prepared with necessary photos and text/copy to get work started, you will develop and share your work with the rest of the group. This course is project based and intended for students with some working knowledge of the program. First time users of Adobe InDesign are recommended to take the 2-Day Intro to Adobe InDesign course first.
We will discuss potential structures and components for different types of catalogs, and explore the basic elements and principles of design as they relate to this unique format. Through demos, group discussions, and the sharing of each others work—students will learn how to best document and sequence their work, and meet professional standards of the industry.
Computer literacy is required. Some working knowledge of other Adobe software would be very helpful, but is not necessary. Virtual courses are conducted via Zoom and are best experienced with a reliable broadband connection, and the ability to configure your workspace to follow a Zoom session, while using other programs at the same time.
Students must have Adobe InDesign installed on their home computers. Various subscription options including month-to-month billing, are available on Adobe’s website.
