NOTE: This class will be held in a live, online format using the Zoom platform.
Tuesdays 1-4:30 pm ET
This course is part of our Young Artist program, Open to all high school-aged students
Let’s talk pictures! And I do mean your pictures. Looking for inspiration, direction, or a community to share your pictures with? This is your time to create new images, receive personal and meaningful feedback on your pictures in a group setting, and develop an understanding of your images.
Join Deanna (DM) over the course of a week with afternoons filled with group review and critique of the previous week’s assignment along with discussion of various styles/genres of photography. Short visual lectures will be used to explore photographic language and the prompt for the next assignment. The time in between classes will provide the opportunity for students to make new images with the tools of their choice (dedicated camera or phone). The end of the course will culminate in a print exchange facilitated by the instructor (no need for students to have access to a printer).
Students will need a solid internet connection to attend class through Zoom with video and audio capacity, as well as basic computer skills, access to software to process their images, and the ability to upload them to a designated space for the instructor to share within the classroom.
