Workshop Fee: $1595
Workshop Duration: 1-week (Monday-Friday)
Workshop Location: On-campus
Class Size: 8
This class is for students (intermediate to advanced) who are secure in their technical abilities and are interested in refining their ideas to work in the direction of a cohesive project – be that an exhibit, book, or installation. The course is designed to help participants ask questions about their individual goals for their images and to address methods to move the work in the direction of those goals.
We will begin with an in-depth examination of the student’s current portfolio. We will then work toward crafting a strategy to move the work forward.
This is a class about reflection and response. Students should be curious and approach this course with an open mind.
We will converse about the importance of the print statement with regard to each individual’s work. We will make adjusted and improved prints for discussion.
Additionally, we will investigate the issue of scale in a print statement.
What to bring?
Participants should bring a portfolio of prints to initiate conversation. Students should bring the files they intend to work on or expand upon on an external hard drive. Students are encouraged to bring their laptops, though participants must use the school computers to print for this workshop.
