This is an intensive class that takes photography beyond the camera. It is designed to further develop the conceptual thought surrounding image making, cultivate intricate visual language skills, and learn what it takes to be a visual storyteller. Drawing upon the mediums of sculpture, painting and film, students are required to create and document “staged” images. Students are encouraged to focus heavily on the content and the concept behind their images, as they do all the shooting and printing of a concise final portfolio. The format includes lecture, group critiques/discussions and the development of each student’s projects. Grading is based on the creation of a personal artistic portfolio, technical image creation skills, and participation in class critiques and conversations. In addition to tuition, a $70 course fee is charged.
