In this workshop, teens will learn from two highly creative and motivated Artworks Loveland artists who will combine their respective artistic talents to teach students how the lost art of darkroom photography and image interpretation can affect how we see, feel, and read a photograph.

Bob will give students an introduction to photography terms and concepts; demonstrate and provide instruction on camera functions and technical camera aspects; and lead students on a photo shoot and darkroom printmaking. Sylvia will offer students an introduction to collage, image empathy, and collage-making. She will also lead exercises inspired by images in poetry, dance, song, drawing, and mixed media. The final class will allow time for photography and collage matting, presentation, critique, and feedback.

Bob Campagna has been an artist-in-residence in the Thompson Schools and through Think 360 Arts. Since 1982, he has taught over 450 photography workshops to more than 11,000 students. He emphasizes the “art of seeing.”

Sylvia Eichmann is an autodidact, collecting skills and experience in diverse environments along her life’s path. Her works are a study in personal process as well as life’s meanings and quirks in various artistic techniques.
