Prerequisite: Recommended for advanced photographers.
Creating projects or bodies of work can be a helpful way of gaining control over your artistic production; they serve as a means of setting boundaries, making timelines, and determining what makes your work your own. In this course you will further develop personal projects in an intensive tutorial fashion. During the first two sessions, you will share work, discuss artistic goals, and develop a meeting schedule. The class will then break up into small groups of three based on your interests, meeting every three weeks throughout the semester. This course aims to provide you with enough space between sessions to make substantive progress and receive focused, dedicated feedback to advance your practice.
