Adult and Teen Friday Studio Program
Join Dallas-based artists and educators, Ashley Whitt and Kristina Smith for a Laurie Simmons’ inspired Friday afternoon workshop in staged photography. In the first few classes, Whitt will focus on Simmons’ use of scale and color and lead the class in constructing dioramas. Students will create their own tiny worlds to photograph. In the second portion, Smith will focus on Simmons’ portrayal of the body and gender and her use of autobiography in her work. Students will explore these themes through writing, performance and various ways of documenting with photography.
Students are encouraged to bring their choice of a camera or smartphone. All other materials are provided.
