Park Slope offers some of the grandest townhouses in Brooklyn, from Queen Anne to Italianate, as well as arguably the finest park in the five boroughs – Prospect Park, painstakingly designed by Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux. Drawing upon inspiration presented in class, students will be provided with examples and exercises to experiment with while out photographing. On day 2, we will visit Red Hook, Brooklyn, a counterpoint to the grandeur of Park Slope – a neighborhood that has always been a bit rough-and-tumble. Today, Red Hook has gentrified like other corners of Brooklyn but still maintains a bit of its seafaring past, as seen through the historic Beard Street warehouses and its unique and stunning waterfront, gazing directly upon Lady Liberty, Governor’s Island, and downtown Manhattan. After the class, students will be able to share their work in a one-hour follow up critique.

Note: This course meets 3/12 and 3/13 1-6PM on location, and 3/16 6:30-8:30 PM on Zoom.
