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.

Photography of Place: Connecting the Inner and Outer

Andrew Moore

Tuition $1,195
Code P0306-24

How does one translate one’s experience of “a sense of place” into a compelling image? And once you have made the image, how do you bring that photograph to life as a print? This two-part workshop covers both shooting on location and studio time for digital printing and critique sessions. In the field, students work directly with the instructor, to help them reimagine their approaches to defining places both technically and aesthetically. Back in the studio, we’ll work on print making skills, and share those results with the class in engaging discussions.

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.
