In this course you will carefully consider your content and your inspiration for this content. You will research your audience, investigate your intent more deeply, and state clearly your goals. We will address perfectionism, doubt, perseverance, vision, and sequencing. Through exercises and exploration, the hope is to gain access to your own unique voice.
It is highly beneficial to view work by other photographers, therefore visiting artists will share their portfolios with us and a field trip to a gallery/museum will also be included.

MATERIALS: First class, bring five related images, loose prints all sized the same—approximately 4" x 6" to approximately 8-1/2" x 11". Purchase a journal or bring the one you already work with. Journaling is a valuable part of an artist’s thinking/doing process. After you are registered, you will be sent a questionnaire that you can answer and email back to the instructor. You will be given a list of excellent books to help you along, but the most important is: Art and Fear: Observations on the Perils and Rewards of Artmaking by Ted Orland and David Bayles.
