Positively impact your image-making by cultivating awareness and integrating new practices into your creative practice. This workshop focuses on the dynamic elements within the creative process that develop an idea into a concept and an image into a style, a project, and/or a body of work.
A photographer’s imagery is composed of layers of choices and decision-making that begin with an inspired idea. Inspiration, appropriation, collaboration, and critique are foundational practices within the creative process — concepts advance along a spiral of idea formation, application, and refinement.
Sybylla presents a unique paradigm highlighting eight elements utilized by artists of all mediums to strengthen the expression of their meaning and message in a concrete form. By exploring content and analyzing the structures within their work participants will identify essential elements of artistic decision-making. This paradigm can be employed by individual photographers and for educators as a teaching tool in assisting students to develop a visual language.
Participants will analyze their own creative process and the use of elements from a wide variety of other visual artists presented. The results include an increased ability to focus ideas and edit existing work with concept development as a lens. Artists will contextualize their own work and strengthening their ability to talk and write about their unique process.
