VIRTUAL WORKSHOP
Writing an Artist Statement

Jun 21 - 25, 2021

Monday, Wednesday & Friday, 9-11:30AM MST

Concept

Join artist and educator Lisa Kereszi in a three-day workshop to help you write an artist statement that sounds like you, and not like someone else’s idea of who you are. We will do short writing prompts together aimed at helping you tap into your visual memories and develop a voice that helps the viewer understand what it is you are trying to share with your photographs. Be prepared to share your writing with the group, as well as have a conversation one-on-one with the instructor. By the end of the week, each participant should have at least a solid first draft of a written piece about their own work that can be adapted for various uses, such as grant-writing, portfolio reviews and exhibition submissions.

Additional Information: This virtual class meets Monday, Wednesday, Friday (June 21, 23 and 25) from 9-11:30AM with one additional 30-minute individual session via Zoom Video Conferencing software (download free from Zoom.com). An Anderson Ranch staff member co-teaches the class and coordinates the online platform. Further details will be emailed to registrants.

Photographic Collage: An Exploration of Photography & Painting

Kate Leonard

Tuition $1,275
Code P0102-24

This class offers an engaging exploration of the synthesis between two distinct art forms: photography and painting. Students discover transfer techniques that integrate photographic images and text directly onto painted surfaces, resulting in intriguingly layered works. Participants explore traditional collage and photomontage, and master new methods that allow for opaque and translucent layers. Reductive methods, such as sanding and scraping, reveal the history of earlier photographic layers and suggest an archaeological approach to image development. The workshop emphasizes experimentation and exploratory approaches. Students produce a portfolio of physical examples of all techniques.

We are inclusive, welcoming, loose, and quick in our process as we explore game design in an art context, using a combination of do-as-I-do demonstrations and prompting to create a game of one's own, encouraging making one's own characters and stories. This workshop is open to learners at all levels. Se habla español.
