Outside the Frame— Interdisciplinary Ideas: Explorations in New (& Older) Media

June 27, 2011
Mondays, 1 - 4 p.m. and Thursdays, 9:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.
Julia's Gallery for Young Artists at the Farnsworth
Ever wondered what your photographs would look like not as stills, but as installations, projections, on the web, as slide show collaborative projects, or as artists’ book? This 10-week summer workshop for high school age students will focus on not only learning basic skills of making photographs, but also what it means to look outside the view-finder by mining the various media available to artists. We will learn about and experiment with the conceptual side of the artistic process. Discussion, occasional readings, and hands-on creation of new (and older) media will be part of this class. Participants will have access to a media lab and use of iMacs, digital cameras, LCD projector, and software such as Photoshop. 
The program will end in an open studio held at Julia’s Gallery on Friday, September 2, 5 to 7 p.m. to coincide with Rockland’s First Friday Art Walk, where participants will get to share their work.
Instructor Deanna Witman is an artist-educator with more than ten years of teaching in the arts. She has taught all age groups and enjoys integrating various art media and the natural world into the classes she leads. She has an M.F.A. in Photography from Maine Media College and has exhibited both nationally and internationally.
