In-Person Learning

This class is designed to give teens an opportunity to voice their opinions, ideas, concerns and dreams about the world they live in. By closely examining their surrounding environment, students will begin to interpret their own perception of reality and manifest that vision through pictures.

The course begins by examining other works of photographic art. Guest speakers may be invited. Students will then be guided to produce their own series of work based upon their own unique vision. Daily assignments will be given and critiqued. Emphasis will be given on learning how to work as a photographic art collective while simultaneously creating individual and personal visions for a photographic series meaningful to each student. Students will be encouraged to voice opinions on each others’ work and learn how to offer constructive criticism.

By the end of the week, students will be deeply committed to a personal project that will serve as a platform for a portfolio review. Connection to self, others and the world we inhabit is the foundation of this class as seen through the photographic image.
 

Gina Valona (http://www.ginavalona.com/) is a photographer, performer and arts educator who uses various mediums to process and transform personal experiences into works addressing issues of identity and sustainability. She has exhibited her photography in galleries throughout the U.S. and has performed on stage at the Getty Center Los Angeles, the Shanghai International Theatre Festival (China) the National Theatre of South Korea. Currently she is pursuing her MFA in Public Practice at OTIS College of Art and Design and is an instructor at the Los Angeles Center for Photography. Her artistic goal is to create works that spark meaningful conversations. She believes that conscious daily actions may serve as both quiet and/or radical acts of revolution that initiate positive personal, local and global change.
