Developing Your Vision: a photographic exploration

Esther Macy Nooner

Tuition $425

For children with an interest in the visual world around them, a camera may be the best tool to capture that curiosity. This workshop is a photographic exploration filled with lessons and activities aimed to help students understand photography’s ability to frame not just a composition, but a human story. The course covers the history of image-making, practicing cyanotype processes and works up to today’s digital technologies. Taking advantage of the Anderson Ranch campus, students create unique photographs and prints that may spark a lifetime of image making.

The Artist's Voice: image and collage

Joshua Rashaad McFadden, Esther Macy Nooner

Tuition $1,155
Code P1123-21

Memory and archive are records of the past, closely correlated, but diverse in interpretation, especially when it comes to personal history. This workshop encourages students to examine their own personal histories with the goal of producing self-portraiture with methods of digital photography and alternative photographic processes such as transfer techniques, collage and digital print manipulation. In addition to the study of portraiture techniques and group discussions, students work one-on-one with the instructor to deepen their own voice and message. This course facilitates the sharpening of personal visions, technical skills and conceptual frameworks to strengthen the artistic practice.

Beyond the Horizon

Esther Macy Nooner

This workshop encourages students to engage their artistic vision through the experience of nature.

Besides a camera (any camera), the only thing students need is an open eye and a willingness to look and consider the possibilities of the images they take.
