|Description:||This 14-week, intensive program fills a distinct niche in the availability of provincial training. Students who wish to develop basic to intermediate skills in the photo arts will focus their studies on arts photography, black and white, and creative expression in both studio and darkroom facilities. They will also discover the great masters, technical developments, and theories during photographic history, and learn to assess how social and political issues shape and form creative ideas. Students will explore mixed media images, creative presentation, and the effects of light.
This program will allow students to build an excellent foundation portfolio through quality studio time, exploration of historic techniques, as well as the analysis and interpretation of photo-based images. Graduates will be able to use a variety of photographic tools, material, equipment, and historic and contemporary techniques to interpret the world around them and to communicate their ideas, thoughts, and feelings through original photo images and constructions.
