DEEPENING YOUR PRACTICE
with Mark Steinmetz
Deepening Your Practice is a one-day, online workshop open to all levels and types of photography-based projects. Artist Mark Steinmetz will guide participants to a better understanding of their work and the meaning and purpose of their projects. Mark will help the group find ways to bring clarity to their creative directions and intentions. Participants will connect more deeply to their own practice and to consider their work within the more expanded practice of contemporary photography. Project critiques will be given with consideration towards shaping a cohesive body of work.
Participants should plan to share a single body of work.
This workshop will be conducted entirely online via Zoom Video Conferencing software, available at Zoom.com for free. Additional details will be emailed to participants in advance of the workshop.
Workshop is limited to 15 participants.
