Workshop Descriptions

    Instructor: Kate Castelli
    Illustration / Visual Narrative
    This course will approach both the conceptual development and production of a self-published ‘zine that actively integrates image and text. Traditional, experimental, and digital methods of making will be explored for both the visual and written elements. Students will work on individual narratives of their choice from concept to production of a minimum edition of 10 ‘Zines. Lectures and demonstrations will examine materials, design, layout, and methods of reproduction. Through object-based learning, students will have access to library and faculty collections that will deepen their knowledge of ‘Zine culture and aesthetic.
    Instructors: Mike Annear and Alex Salsberg
    Animation + Motion Media
    Storytelling is universal, it has existed to communicate ideas big and small throughout human history and across every culture. Animation is one of the most powerful, visually stimulating, and entertaining ways to tell a story. Using the art of animation as a basis for creating strong narratives, Storytelling Animated introduces the animation production process through the exploration of a wide variety of conceptual and technical workshops. Emphasizing both traditional narrative and non-traditional storytelling approaches, this course examines a wide range of visual possibilities within the animation medium, while introducing the basic concepts and principles involved in creating short animated films. Through a series of workshops that focus on various animation techniques including hand-drawn animation, stop-motion animation, digital animation, and experimental animation, students will develop an array of animation skills to tell stories in new and dynamic ways.
    Instructor: Brian Unwin
    Learn the history of Photography through practical application. This course offers you a hands-on opportunity to understand where contemporary photography stands and how it got there. We begin with early non-silver processes transitioning into traditional black and white darkroom techniques. Students will learn about traditional analog materials and how digital technologies can be used to create hybrid prints. We will then leave the darkroom and move into the digital lab, where students will learn about digital workflows and have an opportunity to create camera-less images using scanners. By the end of this course students will have touched upon key developments in photography's rich history while simultaneously honing their skills as an image maker.
    Instructor: Dacia Antunes
    Digital Filmmaking
    The Digital Filmmaking and Design course will introduce students to the field of filmmaking through all phases of production. Students will create individual short films of their choice, starting with pitching an idea to the class and ending with a final critique and review of their work. The class will actively integrate all phases of production, with a focus on idea design, shot composition, digital camera proficiency and video editing techniques in Adobe Premiere Pro. Students will create a personal narrative documentary and experimental film throughout the week, ending with two short films to add to their own body of work.
