FOR PHOTOGRAPHY STUDENTS:
A PHOTOGRAPHY SALON FOR UPPER LEVEL STUDENTS
(Term 3) with Irene Hill
This class is designed for creative, experienced photographers who want to elevate their photography to a higher, more nuanced artistic level.
PRODUCING A BODY OF PHOTOGRAPHIC WORK
(Term 3 and 4) with Bob Neiman
This class is for advanced and master level photographers. As photographers mature in their image making, they begin to identify themes and styles in their work. This process culminates in developing one or more bodies of work.
JUST ADDED FOR ART STUDENTS:
(Term 3 and Term 4) with Deborah LaFogg Docherty
Beginner to intermediate level students will get an understanding of how to use the pastel medium and different techniques currently used. They will get a chance to create pastel paintings that have strong compositions, pleasing colors, exciting contrast and textures that hold the viewer’s interest.
RESIDENT ARTIST WORKSHOP: IMPRESSIONISM INSIDE/OUT
(Term 4) with Patricia Maguire
The focus of this workshop will be impressionist principles of painting in a modern, personalized form, using emotional responses to subject matter. Learn how to use a limited, effective palette, hard and soft edges and broad brushstrokes to convey your impression of a chosen subject matter. For students with some painting experience.
(Term 4) with Manny Jomok
Watercolor has inherent characteristics that because of its fluidity can produce an exciting expression sometimes bold and at times subtle. This course will teach techniques that will produce loose, spontaneous brush strokes that “indicate not duplicate” what is seen; applying paint in a way that’s different from other mediums, even from some other watercolor methods taught.
