First, I should mention that both of the CAW workshops were cancelled due to low enrollment. I realize October is a busy month for everyone, myself included. If you thought about taking a photography workshop and then got too busy to remember to register, take heart, as next spring they'll likely be offered again. I hope they will, anyway, but you never know. The good people at Creative Arts Workshop might just believe not enough people are interested.
So, if you're thinking about learning about pinhole photography or making cyanotypes, contact me, firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll let you know how things are looking for CAW for the Spring. If they decide to pass, I might hold the workshops at my Erector Square studio.
Now that it's officially Fall, though the five plus inches of snow that fell yesterday is still around, I'm moving from making UV based photography to planning and researching for my next projects.
I'll also be a visiting artist at Southern Connecticut State University this month. I'm sitting in on a photography class for pinhole photography next week. At the end of the month, leading a workshop with the Artism* class--something I did last Spring. This time, we'll be painting. I'm very excited to get back into the classroom and work with these students. And we get to paint on big canvases.
* I taught cyanotype photograms earlier this year. It was a lot of fun on a nice sunny day.
More about Artism:
The Center of Excellence on Autism Spectrum Disorders at Southern Connecticut State University sponsors a research program called Artism. The program consists of weekly art making sessions. The research aims to determine if participation in the Artism lessons increases social competencies in participants and if there are differences between inclusive and non-inclusive settings.
