Portfolio Weekend (Camden, ME)
March 3 – 5, 2017 Camden, Maine Class Size: 8 Tuition: $550 Register
I often hear from students that they want more time to discuss their photographs than a class critique provides for. Making the time in a location workshop is challenging so we created this workshop for just this purpose. We keep the class size small so that each participant’s work can be given ample attention. We focus for one hour on both Saturday and Sunday on each student’s work. This weekend of sharing work with a group of peers provides for conversation and mentoring that has proven priceless to many students over the years. We hope you will join in the conversation this year.
The workshop begins Friday, March 3rd at 7 p.m. and ends Sunday, March 5th at 5 p.m. On Friday we will begin with dessert and introductions. Participants will share “5-images-in-5-minutes” from the work brought to the workshop. On Saturday we will spend an hour on each person’s portfolio examining the images from a craft and technique perspective. On Sunday we will return to the images, sequencing them for your determined purpose (portfolio, exhibition, book or other publication).
Please bring prints for this portfolio review. Although these do not have to be final, exhibition prints, it is important that we are looking at prints and not computer screen images. Bring as many images as you wish but understand we may only be able to review 25 – 30 of the images individually. Bring a title for this portfolio or portfolios along with a short artist statement (written statement that describes the intent of this body of work).
All participants are expected to be present throughout the day, at all presentations. Everyone’s experience is enhanced by the peer critiques. Past participants agree that the feedback serves to both clarify perspective on their current work as well as shine a light on the direction of future projects.
Students are responsible for all meals, lodging and transportation. Information on the area can be found at www.camdenrockland.com/where-to-stay.
