$225

with Kate Samworth

Calendar Current session started May 24, 2021 at 1 pm, runs for 6 weeks

Photographs, reference books, and online sources are great tools for the artist/illustrator when used effectively. Learn how to derive the information you need from photos without copying, to establish a light source and create volume and atmosphere from the imagination, and to convey the volume and gesture of figures taken from photographs.  Subject matter will include people, animals, and landscapes from images provided by the instructor or from personal source material.  Instruction will focus on drawing media, with the option to finish projects in color.  Avoid both copyright infringement and the pitfalls of working from photos with helpful advice from a professional in the illustration industry.

with RA Friedman

Calendar Current session started May 26, 2021 at 7 pm, runs for 10 weeks

Achieve the technical knowledge and creative camera skills needed to make powerful, professional-quality photographs using a DSLR or mirrorless camera, from initial capture to final print.  Learn the functions, modes, and menus of your camera; how they affect picture-taking; and how to select the appropriate settings for a given environment.  Instruction will address shooting in RAW format, employing expressive natural and artificial light, creating setups for portraiture, photo-editing, and post-processing in Adobe Lightroom.  Develop a unified body of work ready for exhibition, publication, or a portfolio.  Demonstrations, discussions, reviews and short weekly projects are designed to get you up, out and behind the camera!  Prior photography experience is helpful, but not necessary.  A fully adjustable (pro, “prosumer”) DSLR or mirrorless camera, as well as Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop or Gimp software, required.  A weekly live Zoom session will be held every Wednesday, 7 – 8 p.m. 

Note: This course is available for 1.0 undergraduate credit for $525
