Generative Collage: Exploring your Creative Practice with Code

Chelly Jin

Tuition $1,195
Code P0408-24

This class introduces basic to intermediate creative coding concepts to add or amplify experimental programming in your existing art practice. Throughout this course, we reflect on your current practice through writing prompts and photography exercises, developing a narrative or personal project. Each day, we explore various modes of generative and interactive artmaking: generative digital drawing, generative sound, interactive performance with machine learning, and combining these together to make "digital collages," all while meditating on and folding in your interests. In this methodology, creative coding acts as a mediator between participants, the artist and the technology - together, composing novel experience.

What About Love?

Elinor Carucci, David Hilliard

Tuition $1,195
Code P0409-24

Our best photographs are often inspired by immensely emotional, physical, or psychological pulls within our lives. In photographing people, places, and even objects that we are intimately acquainted with or drawn to, we are better able to communicate a more profound and specific level of understanding of it through the camera’s lens. These intense feelings are the gateway to emotionally resonant pictures. These longings can inspire and inform many working methodologies—a narrative story, a personal journal, a documentary, a visual poem, self-portraiture, and more. Many of us shy away from addressing “the emotional” within our images, but in this workshop, participants are encouraged to embrace these feelings. Students work on enhancing and informing their vision and style while delving deeper into the emotions and nuances of life, experiences, surroundings, and how they coalesce into photographic imagery.

Alternative Digital Printing

Craig Stevens

Tuition $1,295
Code P0511-24

Prepare for a major paradigm shift and uncover the possibilities of alternative digital printing. This workshop debunks the suspicion that digital printmaking lacks the flexibility of its predecessors and expands on the notions of what digital printmaking can be. Participants examine new possibilities to create custom printable substrates, such as coating a rag fine art paper with Ink Aid or Golden Digital Grounds, creating digital skins that can be attached to a variety of surfaces. Print onto film and transfer the images to paper, metal, and plexiglass. The result of the week’s work is an expanded idea of what digital prints can be and uncovering an almost limitless range of possibilities of what individual imagery can become.
