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

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