Tuesday 06:00 PM - 09:00 PM

Art Workshop 112

This class will explore historical and contemporary photography through the lens of

the photographic genre, both through the practice of photographing and through

lectures on artists practicing in each genre. The students will work in each genre for

three weeks, finding a personal voice through both the constraints and freedoms

present throughout the history of each genre. The genres will include landscape,

portraiture, staged photographs, still lives and documentary. The lectures will

include artists from the birth of photography to work made in 2011, with the hope

of showing the wide breadth of work made throughout photography's history. The

class will also be critique based, offering a forum for open and honest discussion of

work made by the students.

Enrollment is limited to 18 students.

This course is not open to auditors.
