This intensive, five-session course is designed to help participants complete a body of work. Lauren will spend the first third of each class discussing such topics as developing a concept, image quality, print quality, print size, printing materials, editing, sequencing, general craft, bookmaking, marketing, and writing a project statement. After each session’s presentation, Lauren will devote the other two-thirds time to evaluating participants’ progress on the development of work.
This is not a ‘technical skills’ workshop, although Lauren will discuss technical skills as they pertain to making the work stronger. The emphasis is on creating the work itself, and shaping its form so that participants will be able to present the project to a chosen audience whether that be a gallery director, collector, or the media. Participants will develop both a tangible product (the photographs) and the ability to explain their importance. With Lauren's guidance participants will sharpen their ability to critique their own work, as well as others, and will take their projects from the stage of conceptualization to final printing.
