Tentative Dates:  Fridays  7:00 - 8:30  3/12,  3/26,  4/9,  4/23

Please check in with Owen if you are interested in enrolling.   Final dates determined by polling participants.

     This is not an Art History class; rather, looking at the paintings and sculptures of different figures and schools in Art History, we will develop photographic assignments.  Students will be challenged to draw inspiration from examples from Art History to create new work.  For example, without relying on computer manipulation, we might exploit depth of field and soft focus to capture the style and atmosphere of an Impressionistic landscape.  Or we may use forced perspective and wide angle lenses to capture the uniquely elongated look of a Giocometti sculpture.  Or we may use advanced lighting techniques to replicate the feel of a candle-lit interior by de La Tour.  The possibilities are endless....
