This course combines image-making and live performance to generate expansive readings of photographs and unsettle the camera’s role in capture. In three live Zoom sessions, participants will learn to identify references in self-selected photographs and build performances in response to the histories and narratives embedded within them. Outside of class, participants will communicate directly with the faculty and peers through Atget Studio in support of each other’s creative process. Upon completion, participants will have a new insight into the role of performance in their art and an understanding of how to create time-based work.

Course Level / Prerequisite: Open to all skill levels. Students ranging from beginner to experienced will be successful in classes that are Open to All Skill Levels.

Course Schedule Note: Students will meet as a group in live Zoom classes and interact the remainder of the time through Atget Studio where they will communicate with their teacher and classmates in an exchange of ideas and feedback with one another. Please be aware that there will be additional time to the listed schedule for student participation.

Atget Software Requirement: Students are required to participate in a one hour Zoom meeting to learn the Atget software prior to the start of class.
