2023 Summer Workshops
Owning Your Truth: More Experiments In Text and Image for Writers and Photographers, is a new class that encourages students to use the text/image form to spontaneously channel an authentic creative voice. Using a series of quick prompt assignments informed by improvisation and mindfulness techniques, the work is helpful for anyone interested in opening up new sources of creative expression. We will also look at the creative rituals of master photographers, artists, and writers to open up new ways of responding. Students will leave the class creatively recharged and ready to see their existing writing and photography practices in a new way. Feedback is individualized for all levels.
