Description

ADVANCED PHOTOGRAPHY PROJECTS Judith Walgren12 sessions >> Saturdays, February 3–April 2110am–1pm, McMillan Conference Room, $530Prerequisite: Recommended for intermediate to advanced photographers.
This advanced course leads students to develop individual photographic projects, new or ongoing, based on personal interests and conceptual concerns. Students are encouraged to explore and define their own goals and individual aesthetic in an atmosphere of cooperative learning. Class time will be divided between discussion and critique of student work (digital or analogue). Discussions on contemporary topics in photography will be used as modes of conceptualization to broaden students’ base of cognitive and artistic processes. Class outings to galleries, studios and museums will also be used to provide inspiration and ideas for exhibition and presentation strategies for students’ work. ____
