Defining, sustaining and evolving upon your vision remains the constant challenge for every artist. This class guides students toward developing a personal voice through intense discussion, focused reflection and honing concepts and skills. Participants begin each day by examining the work of well known artists and discuss their message, why the work is important and what exactly makes it unique. Outings offer reflection and the opportunity to build images in the landscape and surrounding towns while honing photographic skills. Each student works individually with the ParkeHarrisons to refine the message of a photographic vision, while expanding conceptual development and technical skills. Classroom sessions round out the week with plenty of editing, image development, critique and printing opportunities.
