In-Person Learning Class
This highly-experimental class encourages participants to use images and text to spontaneously channel a unique, authentic voice. Using a series of unconventional, quick, prompt assignments, the work is fast, intuitive and helpful for anyone interested in deepening and enhancing the sources of their creative expression.
Students will use improvisation and mindfulness techniques in a supportive group atmosphere and will explore what inspires them to make work that truly reflects their own vision. We will also look at the creative rituals of master photographers, artists and writers to help open up new ways of responding and making. Students will leave the class creatively recharged and ready to see their existing art practice in a new way. Class feedback is individualized for students of all levels.
Joanne Dugan (http://www.joannedugan.com/) is a visual artist, author and editor who lives and works in New York City. Her ongoing fine art practice involves the use of traditional silver-based analog photographic materials to explore photography as a physical medium. Her unique-image experimental abstract works utilize hand-cutting techniques, chemical alterations, vintage materials and repetition to explore and pay homage to the physical limitations and opportunities found in historic analog methods.
NOTE: This is classified as a “Master Photographer” workshop. We advise you to read the “Master Photographer Refund Policy” HERE before enrolling.
