Course Code: 21FILP010

This workshop explores how subconscious thought can be used to sequence and develop new work. In four live Zoom meetings, the class will learn about the role of the subconscious in art and critique each other's ongoing bodies of work. Throughout the week, students will explore surrealism and automatic thinking and engage with their classmates and teacher using Atget Studio* for discussions outside of class time (expect to spend 2-3 hours/week outside of class). Exercises such as automatic writing, involuntary sculpture, meditation, indecipherable writing, as well as assigned readings and more will provoke our subconscious and inspire.

Additionally, students will have the opportunity to meet 1:1 with their teacher on Saturdays from 12:00-3:00pm ET on 10/23, 10/30 & 11/6. Signup with your teacher during your live Zoom meetings.

Course Level / Prerequisite: Intermediate: You are familiar with a camera, whether film or digital. You understand aperture, shutter speed, exposure, white balance, histograms, and how to control focus. You are comfortable editing and processing your images. You may want to learn how to utilize your camera in a more thoughtful and articulate way, or learn more about lighting or how to utilize theoretical concepts in relation to your portfolio of work.

*Students must participate in an one hour Atget Studio training via Zoom prior to the start of class. See ‘Class Preparation’ for dates to attend.

Courses are subject to minimum enrollment. Please register early, within five days of the start-date, to reduce the likelihood of course cancellation and to ensure you receive all course-related materials in time to prepare for class.
