Portraiture and Figuration

Catherine Opie, Christina Quarles, Helen Molesworth

Tuition $1,375
Code P0713-21

Engage in critical group dialogue and critiques to hone the fundamental aspects of your work and deepen your understanding of contemporary art practice. In this master workshop for advanced photographers and painters, students produce work at their own pace, pausing in the mornings for discussion with the instructors and peers. Topics are wide-ranging in both depth and breadth, including technique, concept, approach and context. Students are expected to work independently and to set their own studio goals for the week. The course strongly encourages a broad interpretation of painting and photography for this workshop, and welcomes artists working in installation and incorporating three-dimensional elements into their paintings. Please note: Instructors teach mornings only from 9AM – noon. Afternoons are dedicated to independent studio time. Portfolio Review Required: Thank you for your interest in our Level IV photography workshops at Anderson Ranch Arts Center.
