Thinking In 2-D: Photography and Painting, Nature and Abstraction

June 3, 2018 – June 9, 2018

Carolyn Benedict Fraser and Jenn Houle

In this workshop students interpret the June landscape through the camera lens and paintbrush, and explore the spectrum between representation and abstraction in nature. Lectures include functions of the camera, historic processes, and contemporary photographic methods that push the boundaries of composition and representation in the medium. Using methods such as alternative processes, camera obscuras, pinhole cameras, and DSLR/camera phones, participants will interact with and create images in the surrounding landscape. Demonstrations include using mark-making, color relationships and glazing, and the painted multiple. Students will use their photographs as reference to investigate the language of paint. Participants will form new conceptual approaches to building a body of work in both painting and photography. Open to all skill levels.



COURSE FEE: $525
